HGV damage to Showell Brook culvert - Dry Lane/Witney Hill junction

Showell Brook runs through a culvert at the junction of Witney Hill with Dry Lane in Crawley. HGVs have damaged the headwalls and parapet railing at both ends of this structure. The roads in this location are unsuitable for these large vehicles and drivers run into difficulty trying to make turning manoeuvres to exit the village when they realise they have chosen a poor route. Damage has also been caused to the wall at the entrance to a private property at this location.
