Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

Drainage/repair of roadway at this point on Southbound lanes (on patch re-surfaced after recent vehicle fire last year) has resulted on extreme water run across over both Southbound lanes whenever smallest of rain falls.

High risk of vehicle aqua-planing at this point as either failed drainage/ road repair is resulting in extreme cross road running water over both southbound lanes at this location with smallest of rainfall
