Safety and litter

Many road verges have to be regularly cut to maintain clear lines of visibility – this is particularly crucial at junctions where a ‘visibility splay’ has to be maintained at all times – on busy roads this also applies to the first meter from the edge of the carriageway. Safety has to come first on our roads, but with the sheer size of most road verges there should be no conflict between this and conservation. For many verges a regular annual cut and removal of mowing will keep the verge open, safe and thriving with interesting wildlife.
