Devon County Council have a web page where a plethora of different highways related problems can be reported and tracked (At least I hope they can be tracked!).
Be careful when looking at the various maps. Some just show the reported problems (e.g. the pothole map) others show the actual bridges or item of street furniture (e.g. bollard) etc. that problems can be reported on. I’ve marked the latter category with an asterisk (*). Some of the maps (e.g. street lights) take a long time to load because of the amount of data they contain.
These are the different items that can be reported:
- Pothole – Large deep hole or multiple holes in the same street;
- Flooding & blocked drains – Standing water, blocked drain, flooded property, impassable road;
- Street light* – Not lit, on all day, flickering, shade tilted, wires exposed or leaning;
- Hazardous trees – Leaning, unstable, dying or diseased trees;
- Overgrown vegetation – Pedestrians forced into road, cars over central line, reduced visibility;
- Trip hazard – Hole or significant difference in level on pavement or cycleway;
- Broken manhole cover – Broken, missing or rocking manhole cover;
- Public rights of way – For example blocked access or broken stiles. This page is useful in that it also shows all public rights of way;
- Debris or obstruction – Thick mud, soil, stones, embankment slips, large branches, fallen trees;
- Ice – Ice or snow on road;
- Defective road markings or signs – White and yellow, stop or give way lines or warning signs;
- Bridge – Structural damage or significant obstructions restricting water flow;
- Retaining walls* – Structural damage to roadside supporting walls;
- Traffic light* – Damage or fault to traffic lights or signals;
- Fences & barriers* – Damaged or missing roadside fences or barriers;
- Lit signs & bollards* – Faulty bollard, lit sign, beacon or school crossing patrol light.
