  • Update to issue- So the highways have just been out. All they have done is jack hammered one bit up and put new cement down. Please tell me how this is solving the problem. The tree roots are infiltrating all the water drainage etc under the road, ruining peoples properties and causing damage, I would hasten to add you will have a big bill on your hands when the flooding off the water drainage gets worse (as it will because you haven’t fixed the issue) as I know our neighbours agree the tree is causing untold problems. The tree needs cutting down or the roots poisoning, not just a sticking plaster to stop anyone tripping, please tell me how that solves the original issue I complained about! Please respond asap with a plan in place as to how the tree will be removed. Thank you.
