Litter on M2 and A2 from J2. Litter on J2 of M2 on/off slip roads both London bound and Kent bound needs clearing. It is disgusting. It hasn’t been cleared in years. It needs clearing ASAP. Sliproads leading to the M2 also need clearing

  • Thank you for contacting Highways England about litter at this location.

    I’m sorry to hear of the issues with litter build-up in this area. Litter is a serious issue and we share your concern about the amount of rubbish that is discarded on our roads. Influencing a change in behaviour with our partners, through a combination of clearance and campaign projects is a top priority for us.

    Our campaigns involve installing a range of measures at litter hotspots which have proved to reduce littering and keep our road network cleaner for longer, such as car and lorry driver height bins at motorway service areas and anti-littering posters and signs.

    On receipt of your enquiry I’ve contacted our Service Delivery Manager who has confirmed that litter collection crews have been carrying out recent collections along the M2 and several further collections, including the slip roads and roundabouts at junction 2 of the M2, are scheduled. Therefore, I hope you will notice a significant improvement to the appearance of this area in the weeks to come.

    Kind regards Highways England

  • Nothing has happened. The litter is still disgraceful on the slip roads on and off the M2 and A228.
