Highway drainage is used to clear surface water from the highway. Good highway drainage is important for road safety. Roads need to be well drained to stop flooding, even surface water can cause problems with ice in the winter. Water left standing on roads can also cause maintenance problems, as it can soften the ground under a road making the road surface break up.
