Fence at motorway border damaged

Reported via desktop in the Structures (eg bridges, fencing, noise barriers) category anonymously at 13:06, Wednesday 10 February 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

Our house (46 Millhouse Lane, Croft) has a fence which separates us from the motorway connecting road (M62->M6). This fence was put in by the highways agency many years ago. However there are a few points where some fence pieces have fallen out and one fence which is completely detached from the concrete post. Also one fence is overrun by brambles from the motoway side. I can repair these but this would it require me to go onto the motorway side. We either need the highways agency to repair these or give me permission to go onto the motorway verge to repair them.
