The Staffordshire Highways team prioritise every defect based on National Guidance to ensure that the most dangerous are dealt with as quickly as possible.

Any "Urgent" defects are normally made safe or repaired within 24 hours.

If the defect is not considered urgent, it will be classified as "Routine Works" and it will be prioritised and included in a programme for repair and we aim to complete the repair in about four weeks, however at certain times of year when there is a high demand it can take longer.

Those defects that are not considered to present a hazard are often entered into our "Community Works" programme. The works that get done from this list are prioritised and agreed with your local Parish/Town Council and your County Councillor.

For highway defects that need to be attended to urgently and are out of the contact centre opening hours, please ring 0844 822 2888. You will be asked to quote a pager area number, as a call sign, to enable the relevant duty superintendent to be contacted.
