The Council has cut the hedge back from the corner of Osprey Close and Acomb Wood Drive.
The hedge had grown on “no mans land” over the years to the point where it was obstructing access along the footpath in summer.
The street name plate was also obscured.
Nearby, work on lopping trees in Acomb Wood near Hawkshead Close is due to take place during February and March. The programme of works, which were agreed with local residents last year, is expected to take 6 days to complete.
