A pothole is a sharp edged depression in a road (carriageway), usually resulting from the effects of water or weather damage, and stresses caused by heavy vehicles. Dudley Council repairs potholes on public roads in the borough. We don't repair potholes on private roads; this needs to be done by either the residents or the developer.
If you wish to provide supporting photographs when reporting a pothole or road defect, can we ask that you take two shots like the examples below. Ideally, one photograph showing a close-up of the pothole or defect and the other a wider street view showing the position of the pothole or defect on the street.
