Under the recently published Infrastructure Bill 2014 -2015 the Highways Agency will become a government owned strategic highways company.

Under clause 107 of the Bill, Section 89 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 will be amended so that any strategic highways company will become responsible for ensuring that the highways for which it is responsible are, so far as is practicable, kept clear of litter and refuse.

Currently the Secretary of State for Transport has this responsibility for the Highways Agency’s network of motorways and  trunk roads.
