Fly tipping on emergency access track

Reported via mobile in the Flytipping category anonymously at 09:47, Wednesday 7 April 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

A large amount of fly tipped furniture etc (including a toilet!) is on the emergency access track from Clay Lane Burpham to the A3 Southbound. I first noticed this in February and it seems that there has been further fly tipping since the initial crime. This has been reported through FixMyStreet but no action taken. Not only does this give an unsightly view of Guildford for people coming into the town from Clay Lane or from the A3, it could also have a serious outcome if emergency vehicles could not get through if needed. The gate at the top of the track is not locked. Surely a better gate or a system of bollards could be put in place to deter fly tippers, while maintaining access for emergency vehicles. Thanks.

  • The flytipping remains in the same place, and action is needed before someone's life hangs in the balance and emergency vehicles can't get through again.

  • Thank you for contacting Highways England about fly tipping on a access track near the A3.

    We are aware of this and the fly tipping has been logged for removal. At present, I'm unable to provide a better timescale on this however I can assure you the area will be continually monitored.

    We will provide a further update to confirm when the work has been completed.

    Kind regards Highways England
