We have over 80,000 gullies (drains) on our highway network which are cleaned and cleared on a regular basis. Currently, due to the autumn leaf fall some of these may be blocked. If you feel it is safe to do so you can brush away the excess leaves which will help drain any standing water. Our crews are currently working to unblock as many as possible.
