24 hour priority routes

The 24-hour repair promise ensures that identified priority routes in, around, and out of the borough are fully repaired and refurbished, and kept in a good state of repair.

By reporting defects to these routes you can help the Council take the appropriate action, whether it be fixing potholes or resurfacing, within 24 hours.

The Council prioritises gateways and corridors as these are the busiest routes in the borough. Other routes will be included in the future.

The routes are:
