A clean up of the A27 and A26 has been applauded by Polegate’s MP.
Lewes District Council has revealed some 150 bags of litter have been collected from the two roads recently. The work builds upon action that has previously been taken, following Maria Council raising concerns surrounding the build-up of rubbish with both the District Council and Highways England.
The front end of a Volvo truck and a complete olive green bathroom suite were among the items recently recovered, coming alongside the usual fast food wrappers that are all too often discarded on the side of the road.
It is expected that levels of litter along the stretches of road will be more easily manageable in future, as the District Council works ever more closely with Highways England to alleviate the problem.
Welcoming the announcement, Maria said, “I am delighted that Lewes District Council and Highways England have built up such a strong working relationship, which in turn is allowing them to work together to tackle what were high levels of litter on both the A26 and A27.”
“A large number of my constituents have previously raised this as a concern with me, and I am delighted that those concerns are being taken seriously.”
