Large pool of water in the road splashing over 6ft fence and into garden

Reported via mobile in the Flooding/drainage (NH) category anonymously at 11:51, Tuesday 2 January 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5377576.

Hi, this is the third time we have reported this issue recently and nothing has been done. Large pools of water are forming on the carriageway (Colchester bound) when we have heavy rain and it splashes up our fence and over it into the garden - so not only is it damaging our fence but it’s putting dirty road water all over our garden. Just before Christmas Highways came out and cleared some gulleys further up the road but they did not look at this section. Please can this be escalated as we have raised the issue several times now. Thank you
