You can report problems on the highway including potholes, kerbs, verges, flooding, hedges and trees, public rights of way, road markings, road signs and traffic signals on our highway reporting tool through the link below.

Do not report a highways problem online if:

  • it presents a danger to the public – please call the police on 101
  • it’s on a trunk road – in Cambridgeshire these are the M11, A1, A47, A14, A11 and the A428 – please call Highways England on 0300 123 5000
  • it's on a private road – maintenance of private roads is the responsibility of the landowner

Please do not step out into a busy highway to measure the problem you are reporting, our Local Highway Officers will do this once the report has been submitted.

Please be aware that we will not repair highway problems if they fall below the Reactive Maintenance Intervention Levels. Find more details on the How long does it take to fix a road fault webpage.
