Road maintenance

Private streets

We are not responsible for private roads. The owners - usually the people who live on the street - are responsible for maintaining their private street.

Private street are usually unmade and don't have a bitumen or concrete surface.

Reporting an unsafe private street

The owners are usually responsible for the safety of their private street. If you think a problem is a danger to the public - like a deep hole in the middle of the road - we can arrange to make it safe by placing barriers or road closures around the hazard. Permanent repairs are the responsibility of the owners.

Contact us to report a problem with a private street.
