Reporting road surface defects

One of the best ways of improving the roads for cycling (and others) is to repair potholes and resurface carriageways. There are several on line reporting tools for doing this I used to use fixmystreet.com, mainly because it has categories for other street based problems, but now I use Love Clean Streets via their app, or I use the councils’ own websites.

I do encourage you to report potholes via Love Clean Streets or council websites. B&D Council has not covered itself with glory in this regard. You need to keep monitoring. You may find as I have that they say repairs have been done when they haven’t in fact, or that they close reports for spurious reasons – one example was they said they couldn’t find the hole – this was despite it being pinpointed on their map and by means of its street address.
