Reporting a Highway fault

There are so many blocked drains and other issues that need reporting at the moment.
Below is the link that will take you straight to the KCC highways fault reporting page.
If you log a fault you will be given a fault number so that you can track what is being done about it.
If you opt to report it by putting the location on the map (the easiest way with rural lanes) you will see if someone has reported it before you.
