Sunken manhole cover

Reported via mobile in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 09:50, Thursday 8 February 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5547272.

Manhole cover surrounding tarmac is sinking, this road is a high traffic road with many lorries driving over it daily. This will be very unforgiving and potentially very dangerous when it breaks entirely! Similar thing happened end of last year and it caused disruption for weeks.
