Roads department workers were seen cutting down foliage which blocks the area off from the A801 between the Lathallan and Muiravonside roundabouts yesterday afternoon (Monday).
Readers had contacted the Falkirk Herald to voice concerns about the impact the work could have on wildlife living in the area.
Responding to the issue, a Falkirk Council spokesman said: “We are acting on reports of anti-social behaviour in the area and cutting back some hedges in order to prevent further incidents.
