Please thank highways for surfacing the road between Gillotts corner and the War Memorial at Rotherfield Greys between RG9 1QY and RG9 4QD but point out to them that unless the clear the gullies/grips and drains before it rains the road will continue to flood and undermine the beautiful new surface, which will be an awful waste of money. Attached below is a photograph of the grip outside RG94NT which is totally blocked and the drain outside Sage Lodge is blocked with road chippings.

Please thank highways for surfacing the road between Gillotts corner and the War Memorial at Rotherfield Greys from RG9 1QY to RG9 4QD but point out to them that unless they clear the gullies/grips and drains along this stretch of road before it rains the road will continue to flood and undermine the beautiful new surface, which will be an awful waste of money. Attached above is a photograph of the grip outside RG9 4NT which today is totally full of silt about 4' deep and is now producing a wonderful crop of weeds. This grip is rarely emptied and never fully emptied, and the road always floods when there is a shower of rain severely damaging the pubic highway and our drive into which the water drains when the road is flooded - see photograph above. The drain opposite Sage Lodge RG9 4PP is blocked with the newly laid road chippings - so much traffic on this road since the Highland Park development that it is not safe to take a picture on the bend of this road.
