Not for thousands of litres of water trying to move to the lowest point @Noyade. Water "gradually filtered through" is not an adequate surface drainage solution. That's my main concern here.

 

I've contacted a local water authority, and they advise that any works, whether an aesthetical covering or otherwise, must be approved by the authority in that location.

Hi @Noyade

 
I wish I could weld, I’d make it myself 🤣
The concrete pad just covers the extension of the drain 
 
Good luck and hope you start a new business
