A444’s Spring Clean
Published on Monday, 11th April 2016
We will be conducting a litter pick & cleanse along the A444 on Monday 11 April until Friday 15 April. One lane will be closed to road users on the highway whilst we carry out this work.
The clean will cover the stretch of land from the county boundary (Leekes) to the Griff Island and will include Pickard Way.
Car litter, as well as fly tipping along these stretches of roads in recent months has become a common problem and major concern for the Council. We are asking residents and road users to be mindful when disposing of waste. Litter bins are provided in most lay-bys for road users, however accumulation of litter is still an ongoing problem in this area. Bulky waste can be taken to the Household Waste and Recycling Centre on Tuttle Hill.
“There has been a major issue with the litter accumulation along the A444 for some time which not only uses tax payer’s money to clean, is very unsightly for Nuneaton and Bedworth residents and visitors, but also places litter pickers undertaking the work in a very dangerous situation. 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, I urge you to come forward with the details for us to investigate.”
