Blocked ditch by HDC workmen

The workmen who removed the fallen tree have left the base of the trunk in the ditch - they have in effect blocked the ditch - over 50 acres of golf course drainage system empties into this side of redlands lanes ditches. The water is already backing up. A bigger tele handler is required to lift this trunk out of the ditch. The road is already collapsed slightly as the water from the golf course is now undercutting the road itself.

Also directly opposite the road above the culvert has collapsed - probably when the tele handler was moving the other bits of the massive trunk. This has a very high probability to cause damage to cars should they use this as a passing place.

I have spent over 2 hours clearing the debris from the ditch on the other side of the lane and that is flowing okay... until it overflows at the ditch by Broden stables.
