Highway maintenance

All minor repairs identified from our safety inspections are prioritised for action depending on their severity, location and the hierarchy of the road or footway.

They might include:

  • Raised flagstones
  • Kerbs
  • Potholes
  • Highway drains/gullies
  • Road markings
  • Highway grass verges and weeds
  • Fences, guardrails, crash barriers
  • Overgrown vegetation
  • Damaged, missing or uneven manhole covers.

When you inform us of damage to a footway or carriageway, we will, wherever possible, make contact with you within 1 working day and conclude the enquiry within a maximum of 10 working days.

Other problems

Street works, roadworks, skips, scaffolds, hoardings, advertising boards and building materials that block the pavement can be considered to be causing an obstruction to pedestrians.
