Recent culvert repair inadequate

The relatively recent repair to a surface water drainage culvert at the junction of Little Wolford Road and Rosary Lane has merely shifted the problem further downstream. Surface water from the gullies in Little Wolford Road now emerges from the ground at various other points on the south side of Rosary Lane, along the line of the culvert, most noticeably in front of the gate to the plot next door to No.2 Rosary Lane (see photos). It is clear that the culvert has collapsed at several points between the road junction and the large gulley opposite The Rosary where, together with another culvert from the other end of Rosary Lane, it discharges into a much larger culvert. Whilst short sections of this ancient clay culvert have been repaired at various times over the past 20+ years, surely it is time for the entire run, between the road junction and the large gulley opposite The Rosary, to be replaced.
Your report came to the Bridge Maintenance Mailbox; we have forwarded it to County Highways as this is a drainage issue and doesn't relate to Bridge Maintenance assets.
