Significant amounts of litter

Reported via mobile in the Slip Roads (NH) category anonymously at 09:26, Friday 8 March 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5684768.

Junction 14 Falfield slip road as coming off of the M5 there is a significant amount of litter on the right hand side of the slip road in the tree and vegetation. Full of a variety of bottles, cans, cups and paper litter as you approach the traffic lights. This has increased over the last few months and more noticeable now the evenings are getting lighter again.

Updates

  • 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.

    Kind regards

    National Highways
