Loads of temporary equipment behind

Reported via mobile in the Roadworks (NH) category anonymously at 20:42, Tuesday 2 August 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

I can see this has been reported by there are half a dozen temporary sign frames at both entrances to the village of Water Newton on the A1 Southbound. Your workers have definitely down tools and left, there isn't any works going on and the signs all need collecting. It's a massive eyesore upon entering the village and I can't see how it isn't very similar to flytipping, which is a criminal offence.

  • Thank you for your report concerning redundant roadworks equipment on the A1.

    We are currently looking into a way that we can overcome this issue and will endeavour to remove all redundant signage and equipment at our earliest opportunity.

    Due to the volume of roadworks across our network it can be difficult to identify which equipment needs to stay or be removed.

    We have passed your report on to the relevant department who will investigate your concerns.
