Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and  I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter. 

If you want to find out whether a road is a private or public road, then you can check this with the highway authority for the area where the road is located. This would be the local council.
