Answered By:

TfL is aware of the presence of Japanese knotweed at Neasden Underpass at the top of the westbound off slip and is taking measures to treat it. In most cases this would involve a deep level excavation to remove all roots; however, in this case, doing so would undermine the adjacent retaining wall and hence at this location it is being treated with frequent applications of herbicide. TfL will continue to inspect the site and apply further treatments until it is satisfied that it has been eradicated.
