Sharp brambles spilling on to footpath

Walking to Pages park down Billington Road with my child and 6 and baby in the buggy. I had to make a decision whether to walk in the road or ram the buggy through extremely sharp brambles that are intruding from fence in to footpath. My eldest had to walk behind the buggy and the brambles were at face level. I was appalled and upset. On the way back from the park I walked in the road, whilst pushing the buggy through the brambles and attempting to navigate eldest child through at the same time. There is no footpath on the opposite side of the road, which is absolutely ridiculous. So there is no other option than to use this stretch if you're on foot. Cars were coming off the roundabout as I was walking in the road and had to give me a wide berth. There is literally about 2 ft of path at most to pass by in in this area. Please cut it back and make sure it has treated to prevent future problems.
