Grass verge cutting

Grass verge cutting in rural areas is carried out to ensure that vegetation does not restrict visibility for the highway user and to provide a refuge for pedestrians.

Our policy is to carry out mowing on a safety basis only, by cutting a one-metre width swathe plus additional areas at junctions and on bends, for visibility purposes, three times a year.

Additional cuts may be sanctioned at locations where visibility is impaired and safety jeopardised.
