  • Thank you for contacting National Highways regarding drainage on the A5. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention.

    I passed your concerns onto the local inspector who has visited the site today and reports as follows: • There are no fixed drains along this stretch to be cleared, majority of the drainage along here is ditches and soakaways. • The water in the ditches appeared to be flowing fine with no issues obvious. • The culvert has a slight amount of build up around the grate but it’s not impeding the water flow.

    Thank you again for contacting us. If you need more information about this, please feel free to contact our Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 500 or by email at

    Kind regards

    National Highways
