A46 to get spring clean

Two major high-speed roads in Charnwood are scheduled to be given a spring clean this month.

Charnwood Borough Council’s waste partner Serco will be undertaking the clean-up in March which sees litter and debris removed from central reservations and verges of the A6 and A46 in the borough.

The clean-up is completed twice a year and normally takes place around the same time as the clocks change.

Litter becomes more visible before the clean-ups take place due to grass verges being cut back and the increased daylight.

Matt Bradford, the Council’s head of contracts, Leisure, waste and environment said: “The Council is committed to caring for the environment and keeping the borough a clean place to live and visit. Part of this includes cleansing sections of the A6 and A46 in Charnwood twice a year.

“A significant amount of planning is required for the clean-ups including rolling lane closures which will be in place while work is being carried out.

“We understand it’s frustrating to see litter on the roads. I would urge people to also play their part in looking after the environment by placing any rubbish in a litter bin while they are out and about or save it and dispose of it at home.

“Small actions can make a big difference, so please do your bit and help us to keep our borough clean and tidy.”

The clean-up is started on Saturday and will be ongoing until Friday April 21, 2023.

A rolling lane closure will be in place while cleaning is being carried out and may cause delays. Drivers are encouraged to take care and be vigilant while the rolling lane closures are in place.

The work will cover the main carriageway and grass verges where accessible. The central reservation will be cleared first followed by the outside verges on both sides.

The full schedule of the clean-up can be found at the Council’s website:
