Potholes

Report a pothole

Warning Our team has already inspected potholes outlined with paint and they are due to be fixed. You don't need to report these.

Our teams request potholes, that cause a significant risk to public, be repaired or made safe as soon as possible. All potholes will likely be repaired within six weeks of identification.

If you have seen a pothole please report it. During reporting you can also see on a map if a pothole has already been reported by someone else.

About pothole inspections

Highway Inspectors inspect our highway network on a daily basis. They inspect each road dependent on the road hierarchy which is outlined in the Transport Asset Management Plan (TAMP) with the busiest roads inspected more frequently.

TAMP also outlines how we prioritise the highway problems we find. We cannot repair every pothole straight away due to the size of the road network. Potholes are assigned a priority based on a variety of things including the size, position in the road and how much the road is used.
