Constant flooding issue on the outside lane whenever there is significant rain. Have seen three cars have spun off the road in the past year. Roughly level with the traffic camera in Ryton-on-Dunsmore but on the village side of the carriageway.

Barriers were replacement repaired there but the drainage issue remains.
