Litter around this junction

Reported via mobile in the Slip Roads (NH) category anonymously at 15:32, Tuesday 20 February 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5605548.

There is a large amount of little around both roundabouts and up to the traffic lights in Orrell. In addition to the litter issues the trees that were planted to replace the ones you chopped down to put up the new bridge have all failed leading to increase noise pollution. Could both of these issues be addressed please.

  • 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.

    Please can you clarify the location of the replanting to enable us to investigate. You can contact our 24hr contact centre by calling 0300 123 5000 or email Kind regards National Highways
