  • Highways published a 28 day works order that has not been met. It was supposed to have a high pressure test to see it is drain or a spring problem. This has not been done. The water is still running down the road and meets the main road through village and is on route to the school. It will be extremely dangerous in the winter when this water freezes on the road. This needs to be actioned and rectified as soon as possible.

  • Can someone provide an update please. This was reported in August with a 28 day work order. Still no action, the leak is worsening and temperatures are heading to freezing. All the circumstances we have spent months trying to avoid!

  • This leak has got significantly worse in the last month and there is now a high risk of an accident due to the colder weather. Please can this be addressed as a matter of urgency.

  • The road is now extremely slippery. It always there and really hard to see in the dark as this is an unlit area. We have to walk up and down this road daily with our children to get to abs from school. My 5 year old has slipped a couple of times now where it’s freezing over. It really needs fixing before someone gets really hurt.

  • This remains a problem with the road being wet constantly. Now we are having freezing weather this is a hazard for cars and pedestrians. This is an area adjacent to the village school with a lot of school children crossing this hazardous area twice daily.

  • This road is now extremely dangerous with slippery water and freezing weather approaching. Especially having to walk to school with small children. Please can this be actioned as soon as possible.

  • Anglian water have been back and fourth with this issue and it's still on going. Further investigation needs to done immediately before the winter hits and the water becomes frozen and dangerous. The water leak has become significantly worse in the last 6 months and now covers the road.

  • Getting concerned as weathers getting colder with snow/ice possible very shortly. We have lived in this road for 2 years now and the leak was a problem then and still is. Children walk this way to school and cars used this road, there’s an accident waiting to happen if it does freeze as the road will become an ice rink. Can this p,ease be sorted
