War on Weeds

WAR ON WEEDS

Mayor Dave Hodgson has announced a ‘War on Weeds’ to tackle the rapid weed growth which has taken place across the Borough on roads and pavements. Due to the amount of warm, wet weather this year, weeds have taken the opportunity for rapid growth. Over the next three weeks the whole of the Borough’s highways will be sprayed with green-friendly weed killer spray. In addition, a Council Hit Squad will be sent out manually ripping weeds out of the ground.

 

The Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “We are taking action to crackdown on the weeds that are blighting our roads and pavements. Overgrown vegetation affecting sight lines and safety on the roads is always dealt with as a top priority.”

 

Some weeds are extremely tenacious and can push up through the tarmac surface, causing cracking and expensive road maintenance. 

 

To be successful in weed control, it helps if we all work together. If you would like to report a problem with weeds on the highway, contact the Highways Helpdesk on 01234 718003
