Flail Cutting (Roadside Mowing)
Flail cutting is done along roadsides for safety purposes on defined routes. The roadside is flailed twice a year to reduce the height of the vegetation to ensure sight lines are maintained 1 metre from the edge of the roadway at intersections and driveways. Maple Ridge does not have a budget to cut grass. Once a year flail cutting and brushing of vegetation is done for safety, not aesthetics.
