If there is an urgent problem outside office hours and it is a risk to public safety, please phone the police on 101.
We are responsible for arranging for hazards that are causing a danger or obstruction on the highway to be cleared. We work with the police and other agencies like specialist waste contractors and the Environment Agency.
Examples of hazards can include a tree branch, hazardous waste, traffic cones, a blown tyre or dumped rubbish.
You can report a hazard on the road here.
When you contact us, please give us the following information:
- the road name
- whether it is outside a specific property
- whether it is in the road or on the footway
- whether it is hazardous waste, and if so, what it is
- whether it is near a watercourse (for example, a river or stream) or a drain
