M62 drainage channels entirely full of detritus and litter

Reported via iOS in the Flooding/drainage (NH) category anonymously at 09:32, Mon 10 April 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4419000.

The entire M62 is a disgrace, especially the drainage channels, which are entirely filled with years of uncleared soil, detritus, litter and debris. The road surface cannot drain because all drains are blocked and channels already full. National Highways and their contractors are negligent and in breach of their obligations entirely on almost every motorway in the country. I expect you will take no action, as anywhere else, but i I only hope making such reports will serve as evidence of your inaction in case of a serious accident related to this ongoing neglect.

  • Thank you for your report.

    We will have works commencing shortly on the M62 at J22 to J25, where the drainage system will be fully cleaned out to a maintainable standard.

    From J25 through to J29, there are currently schemes on the ground, upgrading the central reserve that will also aid the drainage of the M62.

    We do undertake several rounds of routine maintenance across Yorkshire annually and these works include drainage clearance and sweeping, which helps keep the carriageway draining as it should.

    Thank you again for contacting us.

    Kind regards

    National Highways
