This area suffers from standing water / flooding after any period of rain which is dangerous to road users and has recently resulted in a vehicle leaving the road and going through my boundary wall which I had to suffer the loss to repair. This section of the B4020 at the bottom of my drive is the lowest point and would benefit from a new drain installation that would help remove standing water from both directions. The resulting damage to my drive and boundary wall from the water being cascaded by passing traffic is quite significant which will mean further costs to myself. Aside from the damage with the speed of the passing traffic it is only a matter of time before another accident happens when a driver looses control. I have dug drainage channels into the grass verge which has helped slightly but when you view the location it will be more obvious why this problem exists. I have more photographs should you wish to see them.
