Lydiate – Altcar Lane flooding

The Lane was flooded yesterday and clearly, the water froze overnight. However, by this afternoon the road was clear again. This was the scene about 1.30pm today:-

But as you can see the water in the deep ditch is still very high. I had noticed how high it was last Monday but also saw an excavator seemingly trying to clear it then. I’m guessing a blockage in the drainage system is the cause?
