  • Interesting you say there isnt an issue. These three pictures were taken this evening 7/12/21 at approx 1745 after you claim to have investigated and found no issue. More images were taken of vehicles that have been damaged in the flood water. As you can see from the image of the flood and the car driving close to the other side of the road the flood water is deep. When I drove into it at 1am on the 5th December, i didnt have the luxury or having other vehicles light up the road to see the flood water. The flood water as also right across the other side of the road and a lot longer in length before hitting the 30mph speed limit. I also notice that two signs have been installed since my incident advising of flood pretty much as you get into the flood water. This is not enough notification to other road users, especially for a road that has national speed limit. Cheshire east or highways have a duty of care to fix this problem ASAP before someone seriously gets hurt, this time we were very lucky not to be injured, someone else might not be as lucky.
