Clearance of vegitation beside railway

There is a general publication re work that needs to take place on rail embankments that can be seen by clicking the link here: Seeing the wood in the trees

Adding to the above we have specific information as follows: The vegetation clearance in this area is limited to a 330 yard long stretch of railway cutting slope on the Bournemouth-direction side of the railway only.

Affected line-side residents should have received a letter notifying them of the proposed work.

WBC's tree officer has been consulted by Network Rail about the vegetation management plans.

Work is expected to begin in late September.
