Drainage Problems

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     

Blocked pipes under the road mean drainage in the Windy Ridge/East Pole area is spilling across the carriageway. Further, impeded drainage away from Windy Ridge has backed up and has inundated some out buildings.

subsidence

Stretches at the side of the road outside East View and also outside  Langmoor House have fallen away alarmingly and will catch out the unwary, as there is a deep drain adjacent.

Constantly masked by water; quite deep and several metres long. Caused by HGV's breaking down the edge of the carriageway.

subsidence

Reported 9 February 2013

 

The carriageway has a deep dip next to where the car is passing, opposite. Here the lane is bounded by a 5' ditch alongside.

 

     

Also seen above, a lorry has slid off the road onto a slick and sodden verge that leads to a shallow ditch.

 

 

 

 

 

         

 

 

 

 

 

Langham Lane

2302681

subsidence

 

A specialised HGV, loaded with shingle, has slid into the deep drainage ditch on the northbound carriageway of Langham Lane, taking some of the subsiding road edge with it. The lorry is being unloaded by its operator with shovels. Initially five police cars were in attendance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reported 14 February 2014

 

This incident follows the lorry above sliding into soft verges/ditch on 12 January 2014.

         

 

The road was closed later to remove the lorry, and the shingle it contained was removed from the field. Traffic lights are now in place. as the road edge has been lost and is now lapped by the waters of a 4-5' ditch.

Drainage problems

Drainage water is exiting a drainage ditch and flowing along the road, excavating a small channel in places as seen. It returns to its blocked underground pipe via two drain holes some way down the road.

Marked

 

Outside Runkin's Corner.

 

The most dangerous hazard on the whole road, as it is often masked by water, but extends 1 metre into the carriageway and is six inches deep with sharp edges. Today another six-inch pierce of tarmac has crumbled off, extending it further.
