Roadside weeds growth problems

I have had complaints from residents in parts of the West End about the growth of roadside weeds in some residential streets/.

I contacted the Director of Environment at the City Council who has advised :

"We are aware that there are a number of areas across the city where we are noting similar concerns with weed growth.    Unfortunately the weather conditions this year have exacerbated this problem. 

We commenced the second round of herbicide treatment and street spraying a few weeks ago.  ... After treatment it will normally take around 10 days for the weeds to die back."
