Dennistoun Community Council is collecting pothole information for the local area, and we need your help to identify where they are.

It was recently reported that 40% of drivers in Scotland have had their car damaged by potholes over the past two years.  They are particularly prevalent in Glasgow, and we have our share throughout Dennistoun. Without any easily scrutinised public record of which potholes have been reported, it is possible that responsibility for damage claims can be deflected.

Glasgow Council are obliged to repair potholes but, to be fair, it can’t do so if they aren’t being reported – and how many of us taken the time to call the ‘pothole hotline’ or file an online report?

So Dennistoun CC is asking you to provide us with locations of any potholes that you know of (contact details below).  We will then submit the data to the ‘pothole hotline’, collect a reference number for each pothole reported, and post the references online.

The locations of the potholes can be on footways as well as road carriageways: all we need is a description of the location.

The best case scenario would be rapid repairs but, if not, the potholes will at least be a matter of public record and the council will be liable for claims due to damage or injury after a reasonable period has elapsed.

Please supply the location of potholes below, and these can also be on the pavements, not just the roads.

You can provide us with the pothole locations in a number of ways:

Or, if you’d prefer to report defects directly:

  • Call RALF (Roads & Lighting Faults) on 0800 373635.
  • Download and report via the My Glasgow app for your Android, Apple, or BlackBerry phone or tablet.

If you require more information, there is a dedicated pothole website at Potholes.co.uk providing further facts and figures, and advice on how to make pothole-related claims.

  3. The potholes are particularly bad on Reidvale Street just off of Bellgrove ! It is a very busy little street and some of the worst ones are at the junction.
