About the service

We are responsible for arranging for hazards that are causing danger or an obstruction on the road 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.

Report a hazard

This form has 2 pages and will take approximately 2 minutes to complete.

When you contact us, please give us the following information:

  • the road name
  • whether it is outside a specific property
  • whether it is on 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

If the hazard is on the M5, A303 or A36 please contact National Highways on 0300 123 5000.

Reporting a problem outside of our hours

If you need to report a problem outside of our normal working hours (Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5pm) and you believe it is urgent and a risk to public safety, please phone 0300 123 2224.
