Report damaged fences or barriers

Fences and barriers within the highway may:

  • encourage pedestrians or cyclists to cross the road at a particular point of safety.
  • guard against falls.
  • help prevent vehicles from colliding with roadside obstructions, large drops or watercourses.
  • prevent access onto paths by motorcycles and cars.
  • protect the public from exposed work areas or temporary hazards.

Boundary fences or hedges are usually the responsibility of the adjacent landowner.
