Huge, huge puddle covering both lanes

After today's heavy rain, the carriageway is again flooded on the road up to Steventon lights just off the Milton interchange. This is due to woeful drainage, probably blocked, coupled with poor road design. It forms a natural bowl at this point, enabling water to collect here and the road level needs to be reduced to enable to drainage onto the island itself. it is particularly deep today, and given the layout of the road, is nigh on impossible to see before being on top of the issue. One day someone will drown their car here, and I hope they will be able to sue OCC for damages as this has been reported several times now.

This morning at 7:01 the nearside lane of the A34 A4130 offlslip to Steventon was again flooded, see 1st 'photo. It had 'slightly' reduced by 12:35, see 2nd 'photo. This problem HAS STILL NOT been resolved after several years of notification.

Sunday 15th December. 1st photograph 07:16 both lanes covered, luckily temperature 3 degrees. 2nd photograph 12:50 only nearside lane covered, temperature 6 degrees. This has been an issue for over 3years, longer than Brexit, thus far no serious accidents. Just a reminder, it is winter and temperatures are dropping.

I had a separate report of this fault, which i was told was going to be closed with NFA. can't believe that every time there is heavy rain this area systematically floods. I passed here at 8am Sunday 15th, and the water was over one and a half lanes. when it's dark the water is hard to see. If it ever freezes up, it'll be a disaster. thanks to Bill for the photos.
