Litter both sides

Reported via desktop in the Litter (NH) category anonymously at 08:02, Fri 19 March 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 2618875.

After recent accidents on the M53 between junctions 4and 5, sadly one fatal, there are a number of flattened trees close to the hard shoulders, but mainly the amount of litter all along both sides. Worst of all is the amount of rubbish on the exit slip road south bound at junction 5. Whilst cars are stationary at the red lights, seems a good time to empty out excess rubbish through the car windows, it looks like the day after the Glastonbury festival but no one to clean it up ! Would it not be possible to install cameras from the traffic light power source to fine these disgusting litter louts or at least a warning sign or two ?

  • Thank you for reporting a litter build up on the M58. We’ve increased our litter picking resource across the network and this litter should be cleared within the next 4 weeks. Currently CCTV is not a feasible option on our motorways. In addition to the extra resource required to monitor cameras, we are not a law enforcement organisation so we are very limited in the actions we can take. If you require any further update on this issue our Customer Contact Centre is available 24 hours a day at: • 0300 123 5000


    Please quote 21879257 to discuss this matter further.

    Kind regards Highways England
