Stay aware: report problems on the road

Report potholes to help keep yourself and others safe

Be careful of catching your front wheel in ruts in the road, drain covers and other risks. Potholes, debris and other problems on the road can be very dangerous to cyclists, and it’s important to report them to prevent accidents.


Reporting potholes

Transport for London are responsible for repairing the trunk routes in London (the major A roads). Other roads are the responsibility of local borough councils. A very small number of roads are private (or ‘unadopted’) - the local authority will be able to provide information.

If the road in question is a trunk road, you can contact Transport for London’s Street Faults Contact Centre on 0845 305 1234. For local authority contacts, please see the list of phonenumbers below.

For repairs outside of London, CTC runs a site where you can log potholes and they will notify the relevant authority: see their website Fill That Hole.
