  • Thank you for your Highways report.
    We have now inspected the defect and no planned repair is necessary at this stage. Please be assured that we will continue to monitor and inspect the road in line with our established service plan.
    All 4 gullies on lancaster close confirmed visually as clear plus gully close to junction. The ponding may be due to extremly heavy rainfall where the drainage can experience a capcity issue but as no standing water observed on inspection, the drainage is working.
    Thank you for reporting this matter,
    Central Bedfordshire Council Highways
