Excessive amount of litter

Reported via mobile in the Litter (NH) category anonymously at 23:11, Sat 4 February 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4204078.

I entered the M2 at Junction, five London bound and came off at Junction three. I could not believe the amount of Litter Straughan all over the banks and the centre reservation. This has not been cleaned in approximately one year. Kent is supposed to be the garden of England, but the amount of litter is an embarrassment to the people that live locally.

  • We're sorry to hear about littering along the M2. Please be assured that litter is a serious issue, and we share your concern about the amount of rubbish that is discarded on our roads.

    We carry out regular litter inspections along the A2 west from Dartford and the M2, with our most recent inspection on 26 January. Following our inspector’s recommendations, we’ve instructed our maintenance partners to arrange litter picks, starting on the eastbound carriageway including slips. In addition to litter picking, other maintenance such as grass cutting and gully clearance will be carried out.

    We’ve instructed the works to be carried out within 28 days, subject to suitable traffic management approval, to provide a safe working environment for the crews. Once the eastbound verges and slips have been picked, we will turn our attention westbound.

    Kind regards

    National Highways
