Giant Hogweed

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) category anonymously at 08:06, Tuesday 22 June 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

Despite being previously reported, regarding the giant hogweed on this slip road, this has not been dealt with. There are plants along most of the slip road, some in clumps, some more individually. The plants are now in flower, so will soon be in seed and that is when things will spread. This slip road is very close to residential areas, and should be prioritised for removal
