Ditch filled with rubble - water and ice hazard

A new entrance has been added to the field in Fonthill Farm that borders Fontley Road by adding a gate and a hard entrance using rubble for vehicles.
This has been in place for some time and the entrance created using building rubble fills the adjacent roadside ditch. The rubble was removed last winter, but the ditch has been filled in again this summer.
Last winter, when the ditch was filled in, rain water ran out onto the road and caused an ice hazard.
Given that the ditch, verge, and road are probably on Council owned land, shouldn't they at least add a pipe to the ditch before filling it in so that the water continues to flow through, under the rubble surface?
A similar problem was caused by the entrance to the new Al Mahdi centre, a few hundred yards further down the road, but they at least had to good sense to re-dig the drainage ditch and lay a pipe under the paved entrance.
