Blocked drain covers

Reported via mobile in the Flooding/drainage (NH) category anonymously at 13:13, Tuesday 2 January 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5378332.

Drain covers on northbound carriageway south of my location blocked and wholly ineffective. Lack of maintenance appears to be the issue as considerable vegetation growing out of the gratings. Result is water flowing down the hard shoulder and, at more level areas, encroaching on the inner lane. Presume you will probably be aware of this but it is particularly noticeable in slow moving traffic. Thanks for your time.
