The drain is blocked with silt and debris and when it rains the road floods right across to the middle reservation of the road, I had managed to clear it on a couple of occasions but it’s beyond that now, in the picture it’s not to badly flooded but will again. There’s a high risk being a corner of cars colliding to miss the flooding as they go over the other side to miss it. Please can this gully/drain be. It’s been going on for about two months now.
