Cycle path unuseable due to overgrown grass/nettles

Reported via desktop in the Pavement/footpath issue category anonymously at 11:41, Thursday 1 July 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

The cycle path that runs all the way down the A52 from LadyBay to Radcliffe on Trent is severely overgrown. Its now to the point where it is extremely difficult to see where the path is. The really bad section is as you approach Radcliffe on Trent where just using the path now results in being stung by nettles. The only alternative is to start cycling on the A52 which is a serious risk to cyclists given it's a 70mph road. Please can maintenance be arranged ASAP
