Information about potholes, including how we inspect, monitor and repair them in Suffolk.

Potholes occur where part of the surface of the road has broken up and fallen out. We carry out regular safety inspections on the roads we are responsible for to find and repair potholes. 

However, potholes and other defects may occur between these inspections - particularly following freezing conditions when water in the road freezes and expands, cracking the road surface.

Potholes and other defects can happen very fast, and we may not know about them.
