Drain cover is clasping
Reported in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 10:25, Mon 16 December 2019
Sent to TfL 5 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS1890260.
The drain cover is clasping causing a danger to cyclist and also causing massive vibrations to neighbouring buildings when the buses drive past. The buses are literarily taking off on one side, which also can’t be good for the suspension either.
Thank you for your report. This will now be investigated by our team and we will update on progress within 10 days. If the issue you have reported is an emergency we will aim to update you on progress within 24 hours.
State changed to: In progress

So they came a fixed the drains, thank you. However, they only repaired two and there are three drains. By not fixing the 3rd drain the issue will return again.
Please arrange to fix third drain before the other two collapse again.

Whatever work was done on one or two of the drains at the junction between Camberwell New Road and Vassall Road has not fixed the wider drainage issue of water not draining away after any light or heavy rainfall by the bus stop on Camberwell New Road northbound. This is causing flooding making conditions dangerous for traffic, cyclists and pedestrians. Something is causing a blockage to the drain either because of a collapse or something else. The flooding is nothing new and has been ongoing for at least 6 months.
