Combat Sutton's potholes by telling the council where they are
If you hate potholes the council says you can do your bit to get rid of them by making sure it knows where they are.
Sutton Council wants to improve its road network by filling in potholes but says it can only do that if people report them.
Councillor Jill Whitehead, chairwoman of the council's environment and neighbourhoods committee, said: "Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians understandably hate potholes and we respond to that by dealing with them as quickly and efficiently as possible.
"A well-maintained road network is important for safety, and keeping up with running repairs cuts the risk of us needing to do expensive structural maintenance. So we’re asking every resident, if you see one, please tell us."
The council has repaired almost 1,500 potholes since April and aims to fill them in within 24 hours of them being reported. Engineers outline potholes in orange paint once they have been reported so if you see one without an outline the council may not know about it.
