Large drain cover in middle of carriageway breaking up

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 15:14, Tue 22 December 2020

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 2443638.

Surrounding tarmac to large drain cover in middle of northbound carriageway breaking up causing drain cover to become loose and make deafening 'clack - clack' noise when struck by vehicle. This noise is keeping residents awake at night. I live in a street adjacent to the A23 and my family are awoken at night by this noise. It is a 24/7 problem. I understand this has been reported by other residents, some in excess of 3 weeks ago! The problem requires urgent attention.

  • Very noisy drain cover in the norhbound carriageway at junction of Brighton Road/Star Lane now repaired. It took a few 'reminders' on a regular basis to get this work done but, job now done and no more unecessary noise (January 2021).

    State changed to: Fixed
