Recent high rainfall results in water not draining into verge drains, but crossing the crown of the road into, now blocked, drain. During cold weather creates an ice sheet causing serious hazard to vehicles approaching at high speed from Fillongley direction. Drains and verge drains not cleared for approximately four years. Reported with photos at end of last year.
