I think this might be the result of an accident, however for about 50m there are dozens of black bags, packaging and all sorts of rubbish that has been dumped along the hard shoulder southbound between CLS and DUrham. There are skid marks on the road so I'm not sure, it is just spread a long way along. It is truly appalling amount of waste.
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.
