Whilst extensive works has been undertaken recently it has only marginally solved the problem. The road traverses the side of a hill and any water draining from the up hill side runs across the pavement and flows across the road and down the hill making it a complete sheet of ice when it freezes. A simple and inexpensive solution would be to create a shallow gutter alongside the kerb to direct the water to the new drain. However a small modification needs to be done to that new drain cover as it sits proud of the existing road and the water bypasses it. Residents of Mill Fields Road have become marooned as no vehicles including emergency service's can pass this obstruction.
A basic understanding of how water flows would have helped in stopping the problem. All that is needed is for a gutter to be formed alongside the kerb in the road surface to direct the water to the new drain that has already been installed above the level of the road surface. Dont they ever check by poring a bucket of water down the road to see if it works before leaving site?
