An emergency includes the following:

  • Dead animals on the road.
  • Fallen trees on the road or footpath.
  • Floods, if it is blocking a road.
  • Obstructions on the road.

Please note that:

  • Road traffic accidents should be reported to the police

If in doubt dial 999 and ask for either the police, fire service or ambulance.

If it is not a emergency, please find out how to report other maintenance issues.
