M62 under bridge.

Reported via desktop in the Pavement/footpath issue (NH) category by Mark Jennings at 13:47, Thu 14 September 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4994120.

While walking under this road bridge, I’ve noticed that there’s a lot of pigeon droppings on both sides of the footpath. The bridge is housing lots of Ferrell pigeons and they are nesting in the gaps between the spans, can you clean up the droppings and net over the areas to stop them nesting which in turn will stop the pigeons.
