Where the road have been resurfaced it’s created a lot of standing water in bad rain. I’ve just aquaplaned over it nearly off the waste of the bridge, I was only doing 45mph at the time. This is only since the road was redone after closures last week.
Thank you for contacting Highways England concerning flooding following resurfacing works on the M65 J1a to J1. We shall look into this issue and aim to provide a response by 23 July.
Can we please ask that you check back on this date for an update.

To fully understand this issue, we'll inspect the location when it is raining. This will help us to determine the cause of the standing water. The dry weather recently has prevented us from fully investigating. As soon as we get the opportunity, we'll determine the cause of the issue and arrange any remedial works that may be required.
