Both the drains in the underpass need clearing as soil and debris has built up, blocking water from draining. It already was an issue - the growing weeds show how long the mud has been there - but the rain last night has spread the mud and it is dangerously slippy.
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 have completed our inspection of the issue and have made arrangements for it to be resolved within 6-8 weeks.
