Road flooded due to blocked drain

One side of the carriageway is completely flooded due to the blocked drain on this corner. The drain has been blocked by vegetation since June (and I have been reporting it via this service since then). The drain is still completely blocked by green vegetation. The flood is not visible until a vehicle has rounded the bend, and then there is several feet of water for about 30 yards. Please could this drain be unblocked before there is an accident?
