Report potholes in the road and pavement

A pothole is where the surface of the road or pavement has worn away, forming a dip in the surface.

We are responsible for the repair and maintenance of potholes to keep roads and pavements safe. Our inspector investigates all reported potholes and assesses them. How quickly the repairs are carried out depends on how much of a danger the pothole causes for road or pavement users.

The most dangerous potholes will be made safe and temporarily repaired within 24 hours of being assessed by our inspector. Others will be added to our programme of road repairs.
