A46 Lincoln Bypass - litter picking

Street Cleansing Teams have completed another successful litter pick – this time along the verges of the A46 Lincoln Bypass dual carriageway.

The Team worked alongside Lincolnshire County Council’s traffic management team from 6pm until midnight on the evening of Thursday 3rd June, collecting 100 bags of rubbish in the process.

Both sides of the Dual Carriageway, including the Centre Reservation, from the A15 roundabout to Burton Bridge overpass, were litter picked with a follow-up litter pick already scheduled for September 2nd.

This follows the collection of over 200 bags of rubbish from the A46 single carriageway last month.

Cllr Tracey Coulson, Chair of the Sustainability, Climate Change and Environment Strategy Working group at West Lindsey District Council, praised the partnership working of those involved.

She said: “It is a pleasure to see Councils working together to keep our local environment clean. As we approach the heart of summer, the majority of us delight in seeing the outdoors in its full colour, and keeping our own environment clean is one small step we can take to creating and keeping a fully healthy and colourful environment.

“Members and Officers at West Lindsey District Council know we can do more to help our local climate – and those on the working group will be presenting our draft climate strategy to Full Council on 28th June, and I invite all residents to watch and participate in that important meeting.”

Assistant Director of Operational & Commercial Services at West Lindsey District Council, Ady Selby, said: “It’s great to see our teams working collaboratively with other Councils to improve the environment; the bypass looked fantastic when the grass was cut and the litter was taken away, I hope this work discourages people from dropping litter at the roadside.

“Our team left Gainsborough at 5.30pm and returned at just past midnight on Friday morning. This partnership working along this section of road happens twice a year and we are delighted to be involved in keeping the section neat and tidy for residents.”
