Third party liability claims
Our procedures for road repairs
Although a road defect (such as a pothole) may have developed and may have appeared to cause damage, it doesn't mean we are liable to pay compensation.
We can't fix everything immediately. Road works are prioritised based on safety and available finance.
South Lanarkshire Council's road network is more than 1530 miles long. There are regular safety inspections to make sure that road defects are identified and, budget permitting, fixed.
Full technical details are available in the safety inspection procedures and guidance manual.
To report a road defect see road and lighting faults.
