Having just driven past this you can see that the water is cascading through the fresh tarmac directly above the recent 'work' that was done at this location.

I trust the council or whoever it is that paid for the original work will be compensated; the original job has obviously not been done properly.
This must be one of the most dug up sections of road in Worcester!
