Clean out drains and channels along central reservation!

Reported via desktop in the Flooding/drainage (NH) category anonymously at 12:21, Mon 19 June 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4689569.

Why have the soil and debris accumulation still not been cleared from the central reservation after many years and promises that it would be cleaned? There are huge piles of detritus and soil blocking the drains and channels along this entire length of M1 all lanes running Smart Motorway. Surface water does not drain properly thanks to this complete lack of maintenance and the drains must also become blocked after every downpour with this much debris and detritus left in the channels uncleared.
