You have until the 28th of July to do this http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/roaduserweb/
ZIlch have some suggestions on what to write
In a long and somewhat tortuous survey from Highways England *|FNAME|*, you’ll get the opportunity to suggest 3 things they might do in the short term and in the long term “to improve your overall experience of using the road network”.
For many of us, the relentless rubbish and discarded works debris that lines our roadsides makes most journeys thoroughly depressing and so we hope you’ll take this opportunity to suggest that they get this sorted.
Not to put words into your mouth but here are some suggestions (please use your own words and reorder the list):
Get contractors to remove discarded A-frames and sand bags
Clear the rubbish that lines the roadsides and junctions
Mount CCTV on sliproads to catch litter bugs
Use variable message signs to encourage responsible disposal
Make it easier for litter-picking to be carried out – get an independent risk assessment report
Introduce a littering-from-vehicles hotline/reporting app
Offer web-cams to high mileage motorists to record from-vehicle littering
it’ll probably take you more than 15 minutes to complete so allow time though you should be able to pause the process.
And do it sooner rather than later, perhaps now/today, to make sure that your voice gets heard.
Only by complaining will anything change.
With best regards,

A great way to try plastic free living is with friends, for a limited period. Plastic Free July is an annual worldwide campaign that encourages people to give up plastic for a month. It has a great website and loads of useful tips. And there is lots of support from others doing it.

The Plastic-free U.K. Directory
Showcasies U.K. based business, people and organisations that are plastic aware, in their own words….
Sadly I don’t have time to cover all the great people and businesses out there… and I always feel a little shy about write ups. Suppose I miss the point. So I ask people to contribute their own posts. The only provisos are that you have to be U.K. based and of course it has to have a rubbish element. Not necessarily anti-plastic but certainly plastic problem aware.
