Water across road at Dunkerton

My commute into Bath goes through Dunkerton, and right at the bottom of
the hill (as the road twists before climbing the hill again) there is
water flowing across the road, presumably from the fields either side.
This has been the case for several weeks now.

I try and cycle my commute as much as possible, and trust me it is not
fun riding through this at the speed that you pick up coming down the
hill! I also have to ride through the spray other cars throw up. The
day can be bone dry, but you'll still get pretty wet on this short
section of road.

However, I'm sure that it will also affect drivers soon, as winter
comes in I'm sure that this section of road will freeze up, making it
more of an accident black spot than it is already, as well as damaging
the road surface and costing us all more money on road repairs.

Is there any chance someone could look at the cause of the water flow
with a view to stopping it?
