  • Thank you for contacting National Highways.

    I appreciate how distressing it can be for our customers to see animal remains lying by the side of the road. We routinely remove such remains when they are found in the live carriageway.

    As these were not in the live carriageway Ringway who are our contractors won’t attend unless they are in a dangerous position.

    I have since spoken to our local inspector who has agreed to visit the site and has said as they are close to the footway he may be able to remove them himself as long as he isn't putting himself in danger.

    Regarding your updates on this issue if your enquiry does relate to an issue on National Highway's network it will be passed to the relevant team within Highways England and they will respond to you within a maximum of 10 working days.

    I hope this helps with to answer your report.

    Kind regards National Highways

    State changed to: No further action
