We are not responsible for private roads.
The private owners are responsible for maintaining their road. They are usually the people who live along the road
Private roads are usually unmade – for example, they don't have a bitumen or concrete surface.
Reporting an unsafe private road
The owners are usually responsible for the safety of their private road. If you think a problem is a danger to the public – for example, 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. The owners are responsible for permanent repairs.
You can contact us to report a problem with a private road.
