Open reach rd repairs have caused an uneven rd blocking the natural flow of any water along the street to the fields, meaning there is localised flooding at the top of driveways and down our driveway

Open reach moved their box from outside our hedge to the opposite entrance to the farmers field in either 2019 or 2020. As they needed to dig up the rd, the resulting repair has created a raised area diagonally across the road. Before any additional water, either from rain, melting snow or Anglian water leaks, used to naturally flow from left to right along the rd into the fields. Now it collects and causes localised flooding at the top of driveways and down my driveway. It creates water in my garage, against my bungalow bricks and right in front of the doorway. Obviously any Anglian water leak is reported and fixed. But they cannot repair the work completed by open reach. We would like someone to come and assess and ideally re level the road outside our home. Thank you
