Mud on the public highway when wet.

Every time the weather is damp or wet, large amounts of Mud is deposited on to the highway. This is mainly caused by heavier vehicles leaving the land fill site and not being cleaned at source before passing Hill Farm. Section 149 of the Highways Act states “if anything is deposited on the highway so as to constitute a nuisance/danger the Highway Authority can require the person who put it there to remove it forthwith”. Mud causes skidding and is therefore dangerous and a nuisance. The first 15 metres of road leading off the Highway should be surfaced and that the provision of adequate on-site wheel washing equipment be installed as appropriate. Not only is this a danger to traffic but other users such as cycles and pedestrians are also getting covered in mud by the spray of cars and trucks that have to pass through this. In addition the increased amount of debris being deposited leads to the gully near the roundabout to block and in turn floods the road. Can this be investigated and intern reduced. Thank you.
