Public Footpath Encroachment - Vegetation in bund / buffer zone.

Reported via desktop in the Overgrown or obscuring view (NH) category anonymously at 02:59, Mon 11 December 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5304068.

The public footpath / Right Of Way which is bounded along it's northerly flank by the M6/62 Westbound slip round onto the M62 (Croft Interchange) that runs from Spittle Brook in the Eastern-most part and Mill/Delph lane motorway bridge in the Western-most part, is heavily overgrown with brambles, small to medium trees which are blocking the path. The buffer zone between the boundary fence and the motorway metal barrier has dense vegetation ranging from trees to weeds and everything in between. Please could you look into thinning this 'buffer' zone to stop future encroachment onto the Right Of Way.
