Manhole cover loose

Reported via desktop in the Structures (eg bridges, fencing, noise barriers) (NH) category anonymously at 16:34, Fri 17 November 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5224813.

Please we haven’t slept for 2/3 weeks now. The banging sound coming from this drain cover is unbearable now. Is anyone coming to fix it.

Drain cover is very loose making a huge nose every time a truck goes over it.

  • Disgraceful that this hasn’t been fixed yet. We are hearing the crashing of the loose manhole cover over a mile away. Every few seconds as lorries go over it. Highways need to be pressing BT if it is ‘their’ asset.

  • Cover is dangerously loose. Sounds like it could come off. Potential for serious accident with damage to people and vehicles. Noise is terrible at night.
