Roads: Litter

Question for Department for Transport

UIN HL16043, tabled on 4 June 2019

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether litter removal is a key performance indicator for Highways England; and if not, why not.

Answered on

There is currently no key performance indicator as part of the Road Investment period (2015 – 2020). This is due to Highways England having a statutory duty under Section 89 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to ensure, so far as is practicable, that its land and highways are kept clear of litter and refuse.
