  • Hello, Can I check if there is an update on this issue? I damaged my bike while cycling over this on the weekend. It is not just a loose manhole cover but it has sunk below the level of the tarmac which has created a lip (causing the damage to the front wheel of the bike). I was lucky not to fall off. Can this please be classified as a safety issue and get the relevant prioritisation?
