Rail works in cutting behind The Birds and Sodbury

The western end of the cutting, near Goldcrest

There's still no further news from Network Rail about their proposed work to remove trees from the cutting behind the Birds and Chiiping Sodbury. We're trying to get them to leave the trees on the very top of the embankment behind the Birds to keep the screening effect, especially opposite the mobile phone mast. We have asked Network Rail to keep the trees behind the allotment fence and on the field edge opposite.

However it looks like they'll have to remove even the top trees behind Chipping Sodbury - parts of the cutting are unstable right to the top, as shown by the recent landslide (where they're still stabilising the bank behind Greenhayes, Smarts Green and Blanchards)

We'll let you know when we hear any more.
