I received an email from a local resident about the state of Hillside Bridge. this is what he had to say:
Is there anything you can do regards the overgrown shrubs & trees on the bridge especially the ones along Hillside Road.
In some places they are encroaching 5-6 feet across the pavement and have become a danger to pedestrians using that stretch of road as they are having to get close to the kerb line if there is more than 1 a breast.
I regularly use this stretch of pavement and this year the shrubs are particularly bad as they are losing there leaves and are hard to spot on these darker nights. This is made worse by the fact that some of them are around the base of the streetlights and reduce the amount of available light.
I have taken up his complaint with the Highways Department and will report back shortly
