Pothole Information - Central Bedfordshire Council, Highways

This article was published in April 2010. Please see Latest News for more recent information.

We will be attending urgently to any pothole on the carriageway that measures more than 150mm long x150mm wide x50mm deep. On the footway, we class slab movement or uneven ironwork more than 20mm, and also holes with a trip exceeding 100mm long x100mm wide x20mm deep as urgent. Anything smaller will still be assessed but monitored for future repair. This includes areas where the carriageway has begun to crumble in multiple places but has not reached the hardcore of the road. These areas will require a more permanent repair once the weather improves.

For all other issues, a member of our Customer Service Team will respond to your issue within 2 working days with advice, guidance, and a report number where action may be required. Our Technicians then have the following timescales to inspect your issue and decide the best course of action:

  • Potholes, surface defects, kerbing, general highway faults - 5 working days from the date of our reply
  • Street lighting faults - 10 working days from the date of our reply
  • All requests for new additions to the Highways, eg: signs, lines, etc - 20 working days from the date of our reply

Kind Regards,
Central Bedfordshire Council

I use the road through Upper Sundon on a regular basis. Cosiderable work has been done repairing potholes but the road surface is breaking up very badly all the way through the village. Are there any plans to completely resurface this road in the very near future. It now requires completly resurfacing not temporary repairs

I live in Glebe Avenue Flitwick and the lower half of the road is in a very bad state. Some holes have been badly filled and SOME cracks have had what looks like a temporary filling put in place. It would be a great help if the job could be done on a permanent basis instead of poor patching up time and time again.
