Standing water

Reported via mobile in the Flooding/drainage (NH) category anonymously at 15:13, Wed 20 December 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5341832.

On this stretch of the a56 northbound there is always standing water when it rains. In icy weather it’s black or thick ice. I’ve lived overlooking the bypass for 25 years and I’ve seen so many accidents here over those years. The road sign/barrier are both totally battered from all the crashes. I’ve reported it before. There’s another bad accident there today 20th December 2023. When will something be done about it????
