Dorset Council road and transport emergencies

If there is an active emergency on the road and if life is in danger, phone 999 for the emergency services.

Emergency contact details

If you are calling outside of office hours (5.30pm - 8.30am, Monday to Friday) please follow the prompts to be transferred to our out-of-hours call centre.

Your report will be immediately raised with the on-duty highways engineer.

Help us help you quicker

Please be as detailed as possible about the location of the incident you are calling about, use points of reference and road names as this will help speed up the process of recording your enquiry and means it can be found quicker.

During severe weather events, you may have to hold the line for an operator.

Minor reports and all general enquiries

If your enquiry is not of an urgent nature, please use our online form.
