Litter all along the hard shoulder

Reported via mobile in the Litter category anonymously at 07:52, Thursday 4 March 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

From about here all along the hard shoulder and shrubbery there is a sea of litter, mostly plastic strung across the A27 until the Hove/ Devils Dyke interchange. Whilst generally unsightly this must be an environmental concern for the area as well.

  • Thank you for contacting Highways England about the amount of litter observed along this stretch of the A27 . However, litter responsibilities on A-roads lie with local authorities. In this instance this would be Brighton and Hove City Council. They can be contacted at to report and understand how they manage their responsibilities. We have reported our own concerns to the Council during February, requesting that they arrange litter collections as soon as practicable. If you require any further update on this issue our Customer Contact Centre is available 24 hours a day at: • 0300 123 5000


    Kind regards Highways England

    State changed to: not the council's responsibility
