Report a pothole on the road

We have adopted a risk based approach to determine whether to take action and what action to take. 

The level of risk from a pothole depends on: 

  • its depth 
  • its surface area
  • safety of road users 
  • location and usage of the road

What we need to know

Help us locate the problem quicker by providing:

  • images (if safe to do so)
  • your name and contact details
  • approximate size of the pothole
  • description of it's location, including any landmarks

Click the location of the pothole on the map to report it.
