Two new online tools have been launched by CTC to help cyclists report blocked trails and holey roads to local authorities. It takes no longer than 2 minutes to use CTC’s new web pages at to report problems to the local authority, which then has a duty to take action. The system allows riders to mark the position of the obstruction by entering an OS reference or zooming in on a map and then attach a description or photo.
A similar facility at allows cyclists to report potholes and other road defects.
The websites also allow other cyclists to see what has been reported, and if a problem is ignored and someone subsequently crashes, it will be possible to show that the council knew about it. Meanwhile, CTC will be working with local authorities to help them meet their duty to keep the roads and trails well maintained.
