Road subsiding into deep ditch

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 23:50, Monday 12 February 2024

Sent to Norfolk County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5569029.

Lady Drove, Downham Market. Look for 'SLOW' painted on the road just BEFORE entering the 40MPH speed limit for Barroway Drove, (heading from the A1122 toward Barroway Drove).

At the left side of the road, where 'SLOW' has been painted on the road, the edge of the highway is subsiding toward the ditch/drain which runs alongside the road. Look too for a rut in the verge beside the subsiding section, where an HGV recently left the road and almost ended up in the ditch.

Please see attached photos.

Lady Drove was partly closed earlier this month for much-needed repair work to similar defects, but this section was missed, despite having been previously marked by NCC for repair.

A disproportionate number of HGVs use this feeble road, which probably goes a long way to explaining this subsidence.
