Running water leaking through a GPO manhole cover and water leaking through ground next to small metal plate. This freezes during cold spells resulting in one car skidding on it on Thursday this week, the car following then swerved to avoid the car, hit more ice and mounted the metal fence on the other side of the road destroying small hedge and breaking up metal fence and breaking up wooden fencing in field.Luckily no one hurt this time.

  • I've answered don't know to the question has the problem been fixed because the hole in the road that was developing because of the running water, has in fact been filled in, and there are now signs out along the road warning of ice on the road, but the water is still running???
