Hi, The grass cutting you have undertaken here and all around this junction has exposed a massive amount of litter that yu haven't collected. Seems more sense to cut after a pick or pick as go because now you have to collect lots of shredded bits! I have reported it to Durham County Council who said it was your job.

  • Thank you for your patience whilst we complete the work in relation to your report. We can confirm that grass cutting is being carried out both a 2m swathe from the edge of the carriageway, carried out twice a year to give road users somewhere to access the verge if they breakdown and somewhere for our people to walk along the verge. Along with this vegetation obscuring traffic signs and signals is also being cut. The litter picking was carried out in April 2021 and the next litter picking will be this month. We hope that this improves your journey. If you require any further update on this issue our Customer Contact Centre is available 24 hours a day at: • 0300 123 5000
