The Highways Agency takes litter issues very seriously and continues to monitor the trunk road section of the A13 for litter as part of its route stewardship.

Following its monthly route inspections the agency passes on information about litter accumulation to Thurrock Council. The agency also meets regularly with it where it makes representations about litter on the A13. The last such meeting was on 8 February 2008. The next meeting is scheduled for June 2008.

The agency also supports Thurrock Council by programming works to enable safe clearance of litter under Highways Agency traffic management.
