Flood water pooling on road

Reported via desktop in the Icy Road category anonymously at 10:27, Friday 22 January 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2494708.

Surface water cascades from PH11 bring silt and other detritus that then pools over a wide area on The Avenue. This will be a significant skid risk when it freezes. the issue is ultimately with the drains on the land above that are not discharging into the brook as original designed. However there is a highway risk that could be addressed with a surface water drain to prevent the water reaching the road.
