To ask the Secretary of State for Transport pursuant to the answers of 11 March 2013, Official Report, columns 20-22W, on motorways: litter, when he intends to supply the information requested in the original questions in respect of the slip roads in Denton at the M67 Junctions (a) 1, (b) 1a, (c) 2, (d) 23 and (e) 24.
The Highways Agency's new maintenance contract for trunk roads and motorways within the geographical area known as Area 10, commenced in early November 2012. The Highways Agency has addressed performance issues that emerged during the early months of the new contract, and the new litter inspection and clearance regime is firmly established.
I have asked the Highways Agency to inform you of its planned schedule for clearing litter from these locations once this has been finalised. A copy of the letter will be placed in the Libraries of the House.
