Temporary roadworks kit abandoned

Reported via desktop in the Roadworks category anonymously at 07:33, Monday 22 February 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

From the Aztec junction all the way until Avonmouth bridge there must be thousands of traffic cones abandoned on both sided of the M way, along with roadsigns, ballast bags etc. The same goes for the Aust services end of the M48. It seems contractors find it impossible to clear up after themselves. The whole of the UK is littered with abandoned temporary roadworks kit!
