The ditch running alongside the motorway is blocked approx 1.3km from the junction going north. The water is pouring onto the field.apparently there’s a bridge with a pipe under to connect with the rest of the ditch which must be blocked . This field (known as the airstrip) is for haymaking and grazing but is now like a paddy field . Please could you investigate .
Thank you for contacting Highways England concerning drainage issue.
We shall look into this issue and aim to provide a response by 20 July.
Can we please ask that you check back on this date for an update.
