A huge puddle forms on the duel carriageway, causing traffic to swerve in to the outside lane to avoid aquaplaning. The silt washed off on to the shared use pavement has made the pavement dangerous to use. A significant Central Government fund has been secured to upgrade nearby connecting roads but this section is a blockage.
Thank you for contacting National Highways regarding blocked drainage on A23.
