  • We are required to cut grass in the highway verge twice a year between April and September. We are responsible for the first 2 metres of verge which will be programmed in the coming weeks as part of our routine cyclic maintenance schedule. Highways England are not responsible for vegetation down the embankment and up to the garden walls.
