Lots of litter

Reported via mobile in the Litter category anonymously at 13:33, Thursday 11 March 2021

I would just like to report how shocking the rubbish along the A1m southbound from Stevenage south to Welwyn is. It’s been there for weeks now and all you see is loads of rubbish along the highway. Don’t know if there is a plan in place but it looks awful.

  • Thank you for contacting Highways England.

    We constantly defect areas of heavy litter deposits and this is picked up monthly by the depots. Unfortunately litter is a fluid issue and can build up very quickly on a heavy trafficked road. Our inspectors will continue to inspect and defect any areas they deem unsightly. We also urge drivers to keep their rubbish with them and dispose of it safely and sensibly upon reaching their destination.

    Thank you again for contacting us and I hope that this helps with your enquiry.

    Kind regards Highways England
