  • Thank you for your patience whilst our inspector reviewed your report.

    Our inspector visited the location and agrees that remedial work is needed to unblock the drains. The drains were found to be full of silt and detritus.

    As such, work is planned, and it has been added to our future maintenance programme. Unfortunately I do not have date this will be undertaken.

    Although we always aim to complete the repairs as planned, the date may change due to unforeseen circumstances.

    We will provide a further update to confirm when the work has been completed or, in exceptional circumstances, a revised date.

    Kind regards Highways England
