  • Hello, just to say how disgraceful most of the slip roads I use are. They all need to be maintained and cleaned up. It is embarrassing to think visitors to the UK are met with dirty unkept roads … 3 rd world comes to mind…many haven’t been touched for several years.

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways about litter.

    We have passed your report to our local inspector who will review the issue as part of their next safety inspection and arrange any remedial action.

    We're currently undertaking a network wide assessment of litter build ups, and will programme work over the next two months to clear the worst affected areas.

    Littering by people is, unfortunately, a behaviour that has a big impact on some parts of our roads. We aim to keep our roads as tidy and free of litter as we can. Our litter picking is carefully planned to try to minimise the impact it has on road users and the safety of our people.

    Litter picks often require lane closures, which are disruptive to traffic flow. To help reduce the frequency of this disruption, where we can, we usually combine our reactive litter picks with other maintenance work which can result in what appears to be a delayed response.

    Kind regards National Highways
