Noisy and loose manhole covers
Reported in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 15:56, Thu 6 February 2020
Sent to TfL 4 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS1983056.
Manhole covers not properly sealed after recent roadworks between Thornton Road and Portman Avenue. Previously reported problem in area was simply closed with a "no action" response. This is unacceptable. You need to competently reseal these covers because they cause a loud noise and disturbance to residents every 10 seconds 24 hours a day every time a car or lorry goes over them. This will eventually cause damage and/or injury to a vehicle, cyclist or pedestrian which TFL will be civilly liable for as TFL is responsible for this stretch of road not the local Richmond council.
