Blocked ditch/gulley causing field/spring water to cross and run into Whitwell Road into Roud Lane. With colder conditions and icy morning due this makes a dangerously stretch of ice.

Sent to Island Roads 13 hours, 13 minutes later. Enquiry ref: 16210060.

The roadside opposite Roud Lane on Godshill- Whitwell Road has a slim gulley that allows the water to run to nearest stream on the same side but this blocks up over the year and causes a mostly constant stream of surface water to cross over onto Roud Lane. This water has been running for the past couple of months showing it has blocked up again. This road will be really treacherous to get out off and for passing cars on the whitwell-Godshill road if not cleared before icy weather arrives and could cause accidents. Your team did a great job last winter and cleared the narrow ditch which made a huge difference. Thanks for your help.
