Vast amounts of litter, looks like a third world country dumping ground

Reported via desktop in the Slip Roads (NH) category anonymously at 08:22, Thursday 21 March 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5746355.

Vast amounts of litter on exit slips, hasn't been picked for yrs. also along motorway network in south yorkshire litter is everywhere, plus broken discard street signs, cones, tyres etc. the exit slips are bad especially M1 junc 31 n/b and s/b. M18 junc 1 n/b and s/b. I pick up litter on the roundabout at junc 31 as no-one else does, but for my own safety and the traffic law act, I am unable to litter pick the slip roads. Please sort it, there is plenty of opportunities to do so due to constant lane closures.

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways about litter.

    We've scheduled in a litter pick for the slip roads in this location. The M18 is also being reviewed by inspectors which will allow us to schedule works to tackle this litter. It's important to note the roundabout here and M18 junction 1 are the responsibility of the local authority. We kindly invite you to extend your report to them directly so that they can schedule works in to tackle the respective 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
