Resurfacing making things worse?

Torrential rain on the way home last night and once again the old Chain Wyre/new OGL island formed its own moat. Yet I don't recall this happening in the past. In fact there's a couple of places that seem to be getting 'puddled up' more than they used to and drawing a connection it seems to be where the road itself or a road nearby has been resurfaced.

Are these actions altering the flow of water and directing it to areas that never used to get it? It may seem a stupid question but are those who do the work taking into account where the drainage is and directing the cambers in that direction?

Anyone else noticing more water forming in areas that never used to? Has that road been resurfaced lately?
