Chopped down tree branches/litter collection

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) (NH) category anonymously at 21:11, Wed 9 March 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3375987.

I have been collecting litter on the slip road from the A56 towards the Bentgate roundabout Haslingden. I have left loads of full bags, old half buried road signs, tyres and larger objects for you to collect asap. There are various piles along the road, all except one pile have been placed roadside of the crash barriers so that they are easy to spot. The pile which is verge side of the barrier is almost at the roundabout near to the rear of the Woolpack pub. This consists of a large road sign which is difficult to move as the grass has half buried it. This section of verge has been left in a shocking state following the cutting down of trees with loads of branches left either side of the crash barrier making walking and litter picking very hard work and dangerous. Question - when doing such maintainance work why do you not litter pick at the same time?
