Roads, footpaths, pavements and verges maintenance and repair

We are responsible for the maintenance and repair of all council-owned (adopted) roads, highways, footpaths, pavements, cycleways, backways and verges in the borough.

We publish a full list of roads adopted by the council.

The M4 motorway and the A419 are the responsibility of Highways England and not Swindon Borough Council.

If the problem is in relation to a pothole, you should report it via our pothole page.

Report a road or pavement in poor conditionBETA

Response times

Problems that require prompt attention because they represent an immediate or imminent risk to the public are assessed, inspected and made safe within one hour. We will follow up with any permanent repair work within six weeks.

Less serious problems are inspected within ten working days. Permanent repair work is then scheduled into our maintenance programme.
