Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

The whole area is strewn with "A" frames, sand bags and signs left over from Roadworks over the last 12 months- they are present on the A281 approaching the Pyecombe Texaco Services, they are starting to be hidden in the grass - on the Nothbound A23 where the overbridge leads from the Village to the A23 sliproad, again, there are signs, debris, sandbags and "A" frames - the roads are littered like a dumping ground with Highways England Debris everywhere you look - what are you doing about cleaning up after yourselves and saving money on excessive equipment where you must have thousands of tons of it strewn all along the roads ?
