National Highways Graveyard

Reported via mobile in the Roadworks (NH) category anonymously at 15:20, Monday 14 February 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

Just driven along the A1 Southbound between Wansford and A1M. The stretch is absolutely disgusting, not only is there tons of litter on the verges and central reservation, there is your equipment everywhere. Old traffic cones (lost count) simply thrown into the vegetation/central reservation when work has been completed. Old sand bags, metal signage also present. What shocking behaviour from your Highways workers! Please send one of your inspectors along this stretch and arrange for all unused equipment to be collected ASAP. What message do you think this behaviour sends out to road users?

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways regarding litter and redundant roadworks equipment on the A1. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention.

    We, National Highways, are not responsible for picking litter on the A1. Under the Environmental Protection Act 1991, the local authority are responsible. In this instance, this falls to Peterborough City Council & Huntingdonshire Council who have both been asked to clear this litter. We will chase them again and escalate if it is not dealt with promptly. The redundant equipment will be cleared over the coming weeks.

    Thank you again for contacting us. If you need more information about this, please feel free to contact our Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 500 or by email at

    Kind regards

    National Highways
