Miscanthus on our streets earlier this year – a concern for our drains


After approaching VIAEM about street cleaning during the road closures for the Tour of Britain this year, we have been informed that “There will be two vehicles on site from 6am to cleanse the gullies on the asterisked roads (see below) so all vehicles will need to be removed by then”. It is anticipated that NSDC will also be carrying out street cleaning on this morning.
