There has been numerous road works on the dual carriageway which has caused the nicking of all the drains as the contractors have filled them with soil from their excavations. There is now not drainage causing flooding on the road which will one day cause a serious accident please please please can the drains be cleaned out before this happens
This has been passed to the Local Area Technician to investigate.
We know that an important part of any road network is the drainage system which is designed to carry water away from the road surface. Even when a gully is clean and well maintained it will only cope with a certain volume of water at one time, a sudden and heavy downpour can still cause flooding especially if the road is in a low lying area.

We operate an annual gully cleansing programme, and our assessment has concluded that the issue reported will be resolved as part of this programme, should the team carrying out the clearance find any other issues these will be looked into and prioritised for a solution.
