Hi guys. When it rains a perched aquifer spring issues out from under the road surface at a small pothole. The water then covers both sides of the road and runs down the road southwards for 30+ metres. The water on the road pools and becomes dangerous to drive over and will be really hazardous in winter when the water freezes.
There is a ditch to the site of the road but the ditch is not full or blocked the water is quite clearly coming from beneath the road.
Filling in the pothole will not solve the problem.
