Soon as it starts to rain the Drainage get covered in leaves and water start to flow around it causing sever erosion to The Common gravel road. This is causing issues to residents (few elderly) using the road. Can you please find a fix to this either by increasing the size of the Drainage intake so the water doesn't go around it. Thank you
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.
