Litter between road and public footpath.

Reported via mobile in the Main Carriageway (NH) category anonymously at 11:36, Monday 8 January 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5412783.

There is a large amount of litter between the road and along the footpath which I believe falls under national highways remit - highways were present last year cutting back foliage on the public path. Litter includes plastics, glass, discarded fencing, cables, and rubble.

  • Thank you for your email of 8 January 2024 about litter between the road and the footpath near the M62. We understand your concerns and appreciate you taking the time to contact us about the issue.

    We've instructed our inspectors to visit the location to check the area. If it’s part of our operational network rather than land simply owned by National Highways, we’ll arrange for a clearance. That will either be as part of our ongoing cyclic maintenance work or as a stand-alone refuse clearance job, depending on how bad the problem is.

    Thank you again for contacting us. If there is anything we can help you with, please email or telephone our Contact Centre. They’re available 24 hours a day by phone: 0300 123 5000 or by email Alternatively, please visit the National Highways website at

    Kind Regards

    National Highways
