Correspondence with waste transport companies using M32

Peter Silverman made this Freedom of Information request to Highways Agency

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Highways Agency,

In his letter to Steve Webb MP of 7th July 2014 David Brewer of the Highways Agency wrote:

" We have recently identified that a larger number of bulk waste lorries are using the M32 and that in part the loss of material from them is exacerbating the problem of litter on and adjacent to the carriageway. We will be seeking to address this issue with the companies involved to try to prevent the litter from occurring in the first place"

Please provide me with copies of all subsequent correspondence including e-mails, with these companies on this issue including the replies from the companies.

Yours faithfully,

Peter Silverman
