Blocked culvert/drainage pipe under road

Water cannot escape from the field on the west of the junction, under the road, to the drainage system on the east of the junction. This is a safety issue because of the very deep water collecting by the culvert which a child could easily fall into, and in recent freezing weather a sheet of ice extended across about half of the road, just where cars would brake before turning onto the Baulking Road. This has been a problem for about two months.
Council ref: ENQ21888407

I have heard from GWR/Balfour Beattie that they kindly tried to clear this as they were in the area (they were, you will recall, involved in the bridge drain system clearance). However, they report that they cannot clear the under-road pipe, despite trying to rod it. If you could deploy your experts that would be much appreciated.

Good morning, please may I have an update on where we are with this fault please.
Although we are going into drier weather, wetter weather will be upon us before we know it and the potential risks will re-surface as stated in original request - Thank you
