I am stationary on the M6 owing to a very tragic accident closing the motorway in both directions. I can’t help but notice an incredible amount of litter that has patently accumulated over time. Surely Highways England has the resources and timetable to at least cleanse all central reservations annually? Kind regards
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.
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.
