Thank you for contacting National Highways regarding litter on the A14. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention.
We, National Highways, are not responsible for picking litter on the A14. Under the Environmental Protection Act 1991, this is the responsibility of the local authority. If you wish to report the issue to them, contact details for local authorities can be found by using the search facility at: www.gov.uk/find-your-local-council.
To help, we’re working with them to ensure litter picking is better co-ordinated with other routine maintenance work on our road network. By doing so, we aim to minimise disruption to those using our roads, reduce costs and importantly, ensure safety standards for those picking the litter are met.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
