Potholes on map
We have upgraded our reporting map so that you can now see the locations where a pothole has already been reported, inspected or repaired.
All red circular icons on the map show a pothole which is awaiting inspection or repair. All green triangular icons show a pothole which has been assessed and fixed (where applicable). You can click on the icons to find out further information about the pothole. If you're satisfied that we're already aware of the pothole you're concerned about, there is no need to re-report it. You can still report new potholes to us.
Please note that the map is not updated in real time, and it may take up to 24 hours for it to display any newly reported, or newly fixed potholes.
