From A422 > WS, field gate on R

Reported anonymously at 10:01, Mon 16 December 2019

Hi This is a problem with a farmer not maintain a field/ditch I think. As you drive from the A421 by the kennels towards Water Stratford, there is a farme on the right. On the left is a field gate. Water is just continually coming from the gate area, on to the road and down the highway. This is causing 2 issues. It is starting to remove previously patched pot holes (which were caused by tha same issue a few years ago) so if this is not sorted, there will be raod repairs needed. And additionally, when we have a frost or cold weather, this stretch of road for 200 yds is very dangerous as the water from the field is freezing. Add to this, at the end of this stretch is an S bend, before long someone will be in the ditch. To make matters worse, this weekend it looks like the field has been accessed by farm vehicles and this has just bought lots of mud out on to the highway because the field entrance is so wet with the water mentioned above that is is now just turned the whole area into a quagmire. I appreciate the field is the issue here and this is not your problem as such, but I think the fact the water is running ontp the highway and the mud and ice when it freezes means you should put pressure on whoever owns this land to either sort the drainage out in the field of do something with the ditches to stop the water reaching the road and to drain correctly. I just feel if something isn't done soon then there will be an accident here or people's vehicles will be damaged.
