FixMyStreet ref: 4890269.
When raining there is standing water / running water on the southbound carriageway of M53. It is very dangerous and I have seen many cars hitting it at speed and have experienced water-planing despite driving sensibly for the general conditions. There will be an accident here at some point soon
Thank you for making your report. We have asked our inspection team to attend this location and assess the issue. If any work is needed, they will arrange for this to happen. Should no immediate work be required we will continue to monitor this during our regular inspections.
Although we always aim to complete repairs as quickly as possible, timescales do vary as we try to minimise disruption to customers by combining activities into single closures and always ensuring the safety of our people.
Kind regards National Highways
