  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report. We can appreciate the concerns, however this road is very minor in nature, the flood does not threaten property and we have to prioritise where we spend our resources. We are aware of the problem but there is no easy quick fix available. Thank you for reporting this matter.

  • I understand what you are saying but it is a very easy fix, there is a open drain approximately 5m away. So it simply needs a pipe digging across the field which the farmer who farms it is perfectly happy for that to be done. Then a road gully putting in the low bit of the road, then problem solved forever. A days work at the very most digging in a field could not be easier. The road is still covered in mud on a dangerous junction due to the flood waters washing mud down to the low point so this is a dangerous problem with a simple easy fix. I have attached a picture of the road covered in mud. Please look at this further. Me and the farmer could dig the trench no problem then the highways can just do there bit on the road at a very low cost. So i do believe it is well worth doing.
