Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 2554536.

Morning, to who it may concern There is a considerable amount of rubbish along all sides of the M54 motorway bridge on Garfield road Telford between junction 5-6. The litter is accumulating on all sides of the bridge embankments at the top of the bridge closest to pedestrians and the road that runs over the motorway. Portable barriers have also been thrown over the bridge closest to the property 20 Garfield road I have placed them up against motorway bridge wall for safety of road users and would like them removed if possible please before kids in the local area start throwing them again. This litter is unsightly and unfortunately is getting worse in the area. We never seem to have litter picked from these areas of the bridge. I have been in contact with my local council they have assessed the work and tell me this is your responsibility and advised me to contact yourselves to get the matter sorted. I would be grateful if this could be dealt with as the signs and rubbish are unsightly. Kind regards Vanessa Houghton
