Litter and debris.

Reported via mobile in the Litter category anonymously at 13:19, Monday 1 March 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

Would it be possible to assign a sweeper to remove the excessive amounts of litter, debris and traffic dirt from the concrete verges of the underpasses during the planned closure in March? This is a city centre location and it isn’t conducive to the efforts of others in improving the city. This will also prevent further surface water flooding of the carriageway (and thus avoidable congestion on the strategic road network and associated economic losses) - the gulleys are clearing being impacted by the dirt and silt.
