Open gate on noise barrier fencing M53 Jct 2a

Reported via mobile in the Structures (eg bridges, fencing, noise barriers) (NH) category anonymously at 09:29, Thu 20 January 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3253878.

Gate on noise barrier fencing immediately adjacent to emergency telephone has been left wide open. Anyone stopping to use emergency telephone could be tempted to step through to get off the motorway but the gate leads onto an extremely steep embankment which slopes down from the motorway spur and could result in serious injury particularly at night. The motorway embankment at this point leads onto Norwich Drive CH49 4QR.
