Road Care and Maintenance
Report a Problem
To report a problem with roads / potholes you need to register or log in to My Account and then select ‘Add a Report’, select the location of the problem and then select the correct category from the drop down menu - e.g. 'Road defects (potholes)', 'Road defects (other)', 'Road marking – Yellow' or 'Road marking – White'.
What happens once I have submitted the report?
We will inspect the problem within two working days and decide how urgently it needs to be fixed.
How long should it take?
Defects that are hazardous or serious will be prioritised. Hazardous defects will be repaired within 24 hours. Serious defects will be repaired within 7 days. We will aim to repair other defects that are not serious or hazardous within 28 working days, but we do not have the resources to repair every defect within that timescale and so will prioritise the more serious and potentially dangerous defects.
How will I be kept up to date?
We will contact you by email to let you know the result of the inspection and again when the repair has been completed.
