Road covered in mud

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 14:20, Wed 25 November 2020

Sent to Norfolk County Council less than a minute later

The main road from Common Road towards Norwich through the village is completely covered in mud and debris from farming actions taking place down Common Road (think it is a potato harvesting). There has been no attempt by the person(s) responsible for this mud to clean it up as defined in the Road Transport legislation. Soon it will rain and the road will become a mud bath and then potentially freeze making the road like an ice-rink. The business utilising this public road need to be reminded and cautioned as to their responsibilities in keeping the road clean. I will be reporting this to Norfolk CC as well. Thank you for your time.

  • There was no attempt by the agricultural concern who made the mess to clear it. The council took no action to enforce the requirement or to even get the mess cleared. It has been left to the elements (rain) and the action of car tyres to "clear" the road. The remains are now clogging the gullies to the drains which is now causing rainwater to puddle across the road - walking the pavements now is a hazard because the vehicles splash through the puddles soaking the pavements (and those on it.!). Breckland/Norfolk council cannot be bothered. I doubt it will ever be cleared despite a massive lift in the council tax next year..!! Money for old rope as they say - pay more - get less.!
