Report a pothole
We are responsible for repairing all public roads, pavements and cycle paths within the borough.
Our budget is limited so we risk assess and prioritise repairs as follows:
- More than 40mm deep - a risk assessment is made and we will prioritise the repair within 24 hours
- Less than 40mm deep - a risk assessment is made to determine if the defect is a hazard and if a repair needs to be scheduled in
Between April 2021 and the end of March 2022, we repaired 10,769 potholes in the borough. This is an improvement of 4741 on the previous year.
You can find out more about our response times, how we decide what to repair and other information about the service, on our pothole repairs question and answer page.
It's easy to report a pothole online. Your report helps us identify damage we might not know about.
In the online report, you simply mark the pothole on a map and leave a few details. As we do not maintain the A419 or M4, please report any damage to either of these roads to Highways England.
