On the sharp bend opposite the turning for Clipstone dairy

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 362209.
The road floods deeply after rain, covering the northbound/westbound carriageway on the A4012 just outside Leighton Buzzard. Cars can't see the flood until they turn sharply into the lefthand turn on the bend and then veer out onto the opposite carriageway to avoid it. The spray blinds cars travelling in the opposite direction and also causes them to swerve out on the sharp bend to avoid being hit. This flooding has been present since the verges were dug up (possibly for gas main replacement) and the drain there must now be blocked.
