Excessive rainwater and mud running off road

Reported anonymously at 18:30, Thursday 20 May 2021

I am not sure if you can help. We are a small community of 5 properties and we live in a small dip off the A49 not far from the Axe and Cleaver Public House in Much Birch Hereford. We are experiencing an excess of rainwater coming off the main road and it is flowing down our driveway and causing problems. We have looked at our small drains across our driveway that were installed by our developer about 8 years ago and have used drainage rods to clear a build up of mud that was not clearing to the soakaway. It is now obvious that the excess rainwater is causing problems and is dragging mud and debris from the A49 down our driveway and our small driveway drainage is unable to cope. I am wondering if there is a mains drain that is blocked on the main A49 or whether there is enough drainage to cope on the A49 to ensure that this rainwater drains before flowing down our driveway?
