Silted up bridge arches needs cleaning out - flooding

The arches underneath the road bridge in Hethe needs looking at as this is causing a large flooding problem in the field which has a footpath in it. It is silted up so badly water is held back from flowing through the bridge, this has been getting worse for several years. This stream dries up in the summer so can be cleaned out then

  • Thankyou for your enquiry. Experiance has shown us that cleaning the area underneath the bridge is a expensive operation when the ditche/river haven't been maintained .My advice would be to clear ta large area of the ditche/river both sides first . JF13/11/19
