  • There is a horrendous amount of litter and fly-tipping along A249 from Junction 7 M20 to Junction 5 M2. M2 is no better in either direction.... Ironically I often see "environmental waste vehicles" (Countrywide/Ling) with waste materials being sucked out into the slipstream from under the net/tarp further adding further to the mess. Does anybody read this?

  • I drove down the A249 from Iwade to Maidstone for the first time in many weeks on Tues 09/03/2021 and was horrified at the amount of litter and just extortionate amounts of plastic caught in the trees. Mortified is an understatement!!

  • Drove along the A249 today from Kemsley to Maidstone today (02-04-21) and the litter is a disgrace. Because of the vegetation growing now it will soon cover the rubbish which will help the authorities!! I've given up emailing my local MP who in turn contacts Highways England and the local authorities. This problem is getting worse year by year.

  • Highways England please get teams out there clearing this litter. 'Dirty man of Europe' is the title this country is called now by friends who visit me for the EU.
