Weed problem on wire mesh street railing!

I assume mesh is being used to save repair costs. Also, possibly traditional timber street railing is now not considered safe? The mesh is fast attracting large swathes of weeds as it the perfect surface for climbing on!.... How is the council going to control the weeds from covering the mesh?....Increase the amount of weed spraying? Also, surely repainting the timber beneath the mesh could be problematic? Simply repairing the existing timber railing would be the best option and adding in more timber rails (if safety is a problem). Wellington's traditional timber street railing is worth saving ....and looks far better than wire mesh.
Note: One photo shows how a mesh area has now become an ivy hedge!.
