I have travelled on this motorway everyday for the last 2 weeks and there is a dead tabby cat lying on the central reservation next to the fast Lane. Quite distressing to see.

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways about dead cat. I'm sorry to hear about this, I do understand your concerns. As you can appreciate we can't risk the safety of our workforce by asking them to attempt to remove the cat. We may need to implement a road block or roadspace booking to retrieve the cat. We'll endeavour to remove it along with our cyclic maintenance as soon as possible.

    Kind regards National Highways
