Highways Agency says A40 flooding problem has been fixed
FLOODING on a Highnam road has been 'resolved' says the Highways Agency.
The parish council had raised concerns about the junction where the A40 meets the B4215.
They said it was flooding every time it rained causing "considerable tailbacks" as drivers were reluctant to drive through the water.
Highnam parish clerk Richard Hicks said it took him 35 minutes to drive less than a mile from Rudford to Highnam last week. He said councillors were concerned it may be a long term problem and had urged the county council to take action.

A spokesman for the Highways Agency said contractors had carried out an inspection of the site and discovered blocked gullies on the B4215, which falls under the responsibility of Gloucestershire County Council She said: "As the gullies were causing issues on the A40, which is a Highways Agency road, our contractors decided to clear the gullies while they were at the location."
