Although Bolton Council inspects our maintained highways at regular intervals and our process is robust and beyond national standards, we still also rely on members of the public bringing to our attention possible hazards and problems.

Streetcare is our service for reporting a variety of highway issues including:

  • Potholes and surfacing problems 
  • Street lighting issues
  • Damaged kerbs
  • Blocked drains and gullies
  • Missing or damaged guardrails or bollards
  • Missing manhole covers and grids
  • Damaged or missing signs and lines 

How can I report an issue?

Our duty

The Council has a duty to maintain its highways as outlined within section 41 and 58 of the Highways Act 1980. In order to comply, the Council has a team of highway inspectors that undertake highway safety inspections of all its adopted highways at regular intervals.
These safety inspections are carried out to specified frequencies, dependant upon the status of each highway. During the inspection, problems identified which are at, or exceed, the minimum intervention levels as outlined within the code of practice, are identified and processed for repair.
