I AM WONDERING why we, who use the Malpas bypass, the section of the A4042, have to constantly put up with huge amounts of litter and rubbish strewn across the area?

When telephoning to ask for the road to be cleaned I am always told that it will be done when traffic management can be arranged.

The SDR from the Coldra is kept in an absolutely pristine condition, as is Cwmbran Drive.

The SDR being managed and cleaned by Ringway Infrastructure Services and Cwmbran Drive, of course by Torfaen Council.

Perhaps Newport City could follow the same model for cleaning our roads.
