Large Puddle/Flooding on A46 Southbound (J5)

Reported via mobile in the Flooding/drainage category anonymously at 09:41, Saturday 22 May 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

The outside lane (and other two lanes to a lesser extent) regularly floods when it rains. This has been like it for some time and has been the cause of numerous accidents. Could the road surface/drainage be looked at please as soon as possible? The flooding is by the mileage sign when travelling southbound or opposite the overhead gantry for the northbound carriageway.
