Commuters beware of Japanese knotweed at Dinting Station

Commuters using Dinting should be careful not to take home any fragments of plant material when passing through the station. Japanese knotweed has been rampant at Dinting Railway station for some time. It has spread from the eastern side of the site to the garden opposite and overhangs the road and pavement in several places. Less than 1g of plant material is sufficient to start a new infection if it is accidentally transported. 

We have contacted Network Rail to ask how they intend to combat the problem, and will include any reply received on this page.
