  • Thank you for your report. Our Highways Officer has investigated the sunken carriageway. Upon checking the records and visiting the site we believe this is caused by the gravity sewer pipe underneath the carriageway. Our Highways Officer has contacted Thames Water and passed on all the details requesting they investigate the pipe and make a repair. Thank you.
