Lots of Overgrown bushes/shrubs & leaves

Hi there,

Please make sure the whole of this 'alley' that extends from Barnes Bridge to Russell Kerr Close is regularly cleaned and maintained, especially at this time of year. I appreciate leaf clearance is a major operation for any council but this key pedestrian and cyclist artery is always left out of the regular routine.

At present, there is, once again, a whole load of horse manure to be cleared up. Also, a great many of the trees, bushes, and shrubs have overgrown through and over the fences on both sides, and cycling along here involves a lot of ducking and evasive maneuvering. In addition, the weeds have been left to get out of control along both sides of the path. And we once again have a lot of leaves which is a problem for cyclists as they rot and become very slick.

Again this key link between the Barnes Bridge and Chiswick Rail Station is totally undervalued for regular cleaning and maintenance, please upgrade its priority to be just as important as elsewhere and get it thoroughly groomed in the meantime.

Even though the Hammersmith Bridge is open again, it really is very highly used by the public, it was even before the bridge closure, but now even more so.

Many thanks in advance.
