Pothole reports

View all pothole reports data.

Here you will see data on the number of reports of potholes received by the Highways team with a comparison to the data for all highways reports.

Spikes in pothole reports are typically the result of periods of adverse weather, such as sustained periods of cold and wet weather that expose existing weaknesses in the highway network through expansion and contraction of the road surface.

A new online reporting tool was introduced in January 2023 which has made it easier to report pothole and other road condition issues to the council.
