Drain in middle of road seems to be sinking

Reported via desktop in the Pothole on road/cycleway category anonymously at 16:21, Wednesday 27 January 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 385923.

A triangle drain in middle of road opposite driveway od 26 appears to be sinking with a crack surrounding it and the road has dropped with a large crack running up the road away from the sunken area. - The whole stretch of road from where the tarmac changes just by road opening to Branston Hall all the way down to Beech Road - the road surface here is a disgrace and patching it up is a very temporary fix which makes the road uneven and even if all potholes were filled the lorries and agricultural traffic would still bounce and crash over the repairs creating terrible noise and vibrations for the nearby residents and their properties. Along this whole stretch of road on each side is road gravel which is breaking away from the surface in many places and then forms potholes - just looking at the amount of gravel gathered shows how badly the road is breaking up
