Early in May, Cambridgeshire County Council reported that the wettest winter on record and the two extended cold spells are likely to cost an additional £200,000 in urgent repairs to ‘defects within the highway’ alone. They are asking for our help reporting problems. We are still hoping that there will eventually be a single fault-reporting mechanism for the entire county but, in the meantime, you can use one of the following ways to report highway problems:

  • Phone Cambridge City Council on (01223) 458260
  • Fill in the online form on the County Council’s web site.
  • Post one of our pothole postcards .
