Ash trees growing along central reservation.

Reported via iOS in the Overgrown or obscuring view (NH) category by Gwyneth Gill at 23:53, Wednesday 15 May 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5979909.

Along many parts of the M50, starting from the Overross roundabout and down the road, including where noted you will find tall large weeds that are now growing into trees. Already, as small bushes they are hanging out into the fast lane and making road a bit narrower. If they are not killed using weed killer and then pulled up they will narrow the road and will require much more expensive long term and ongoing remedial work. Please pull them out.
