Report a pothole or other road problem
You can report any road maintenance issue, such as potholes and damaged street lights, by using our report a problem with a road or street online form.
Once it’s been reported to us, a pothole is made safe between 2 and 24 hours depending on the risk it poses and its severity. Within this time they are temporarily filled to make the road surface safe.
We then return to put a permanent fix in place, by squaring the hole, digging it out and refilling it with hot tarmac.
Wokingham’s share of the £420 million autumn budget
A sum of £1.177 million was allocated to Wokingham as part of the November 2018 budget presented by the Chancellor. Part of this fund will be allocated to a dedicated pothole busting fund of £113,000 to allow officers to systematically address issues across the network that develop during the cold snap of winter.
This additional funding has been allocated by the Council, based not only on information provided in the usual condition surveys, undertaken as part of the Annual Road Maintenance Campaign, but also taking into consideration the deliverability of these projects within the timescales provided. It was also essential to consider any planned projects taking place within the surrounding areas to minimise both cost and disruption.
As a result of these consideration the Council identified the following schemes:
- A329M Coppid Beech (Norreys) - Resurfacing flyover
- Mereoak Lane / Grazeley Green Road (Shinfield South) - Junction improvements
- Wilderness Road (Hillside) – Drainage improvements
- Rushey Way (Hillside) – Carriageway resurfacing
- Woodlands Avenue (Bulmershe and Whitegates) - carriageway resurfacing
In addition to these works, a number of smaller estate roads within the Borough are planned for micro asphalt resurfacing. We hope to deliver the programme over the later part of the year.
