The site, formally railway sidings, had long been overgrown with patches of established knotweed.

Passing the site to catch a train to London for a knotweed survey an Elcot staff member noticed that the site was being cleared and that plant was moving through the knotweed.

He called the office and another surveyor called on the site within half an hour and explained the issues of knotweed to site management, who were unaware of the issues knotweed on site could create.

The following day Elcot provided a costed management plan to dig, sift and bury on site and monitor to ensure eradication which was accepted by the client.
