Road markings

We are responsible for road markings on all streets except red routes.

A pothole is where the surface of the road has been eroded and a hollow has formed.

Road resurfacing notices (section 58)

It is a statutory requirement under section 58 of the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 for us to give notice to utility companies of roads which we propose to resurface.
