Vegetation in surface water drains

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) category anonymously at 10:54, Saturday 7 August 2021

Travelling Westward over the A14 Orwell Bridge very noticeable large weed growth in all surface water drains. Usually cleared in October but because of the large excessive rainfall we are now having they really need clearing now. Failure to clear could cause road flooding at either ends of the bridge.
