Major clean up planned for A444
Published on Tuesday, 19th January 2021
Council confirm A444 clean up and litter pick
Over the coming weeks our cleansing teams will be conducting a litter pick and cleanse along the A444, B4113 and nearby country lanes. Lane closures and traffic management will be in place to enable operatives to carry out the work - 27/01/21 – 03/02/21 - A444 and B4113 (Pickards Way)
Lanes will be closed during this time and the litter pick and cleanse will run the full length of the bypass over the week. The slip roads at Newtown Road will be litter picked in the early hours of Sunday 24 January.
Gypsy Lane in Nuneaton along with Coventry Road Bulkington, Astley Lane, Bedworth Lane and Hospital Lane in Bedworth will all be cleaned this week and traffic management will also be in place during this time to ensure workers can carry out the clean safely.
Car litter, as well as fly tipping along these stretches of roads remains a common problem and major concern for the council. The council asks that residents and road users ensure waste is taken home with them. Litter bins are provided in most laybys for road users, however accumulation of litter is still an ongoing problem in this area. Bulky waste can be taken to the Judkins Household Waste and Recycling Centre on Tuttle Hill.
Councillor Jill Sheppard, Portfolio holder for Refuse and Central Services said:
“There has been an issue with litter accumulation along these roads for some time which not only uses tax payers money to clean, but is also very unsightly for Nuneaton and Bedworth residents and visitors, and it places litter pickers undertaking the work at risk.
“The litter pick is necessary to free the area from litter and the council apologises for any inconvenience this may cause during this time. If anyone does see littering from a motor vehicle or fly tipping, I urge you to come forward with the details for us to investigate.”
