ROAD users have been urged to report any additional potholes created by recent bad weather.

Stuart Best, Bournemouth council’s street services manager said: "Over recent days our teams have been working round-the-clock to mitigate the impact of the recent severe weather event and keep our main routes moving. Our team of highway inspectors will investigate all reported potholes and assess them.

"How quickly the repairs are carried out depends on how much of a risk the pothole causes for road or pavement users. The majority of potholes will be made safe and temporarily repaired within 24 hours of being assessed by our inspector.

"Others will be added to our programme of road repairs. We actively encourage residents to report potholes to us."

Anyone with information should go to or call 01202 451199, giving as much details as possible about the location of the pothole.

A Dorset County Council spokesman added: "It’s too early to say what impact the recent weather has had on the road network. The Highways team routinely inspect the county’s roads and if they come across sections that have deteriorated these will be added to our planned maintenance plan.

"Potholes can be reported online at Search pothole repairs."
