Deflection wall
I have seen this sort of structure (to ensure water turns a corner and does not wash up onto the adjacent road) on a larger scale for dam overflows, but never in a roadside ditch. But the stream entering through this concrete culvert appears to drain a large area of the steep eastern slope of Coopers Hill, so may well be subject to high flows in flash floods.
