Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5675506.

This has caused a huge deep bump in the road which is extremely dangerous.

Manhole cover needs raising and surrounding road area resurfacing.

  • The subsidence to this cast iron manhole cover has got a lot worse and the bump / dip in the road is huge and extremely dangerous especially due to this being in a downhill section on a fast road by a T-Junction Turning
