Manhole cover loose.

Reported in the Roadworks category anonymously at 23:47, Sun 8 March 2020

Sent to TfL 10 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS2048816.

The manhole cover which had works done round it has not been put back properly. So 1) it is a potential hazard for cyclists and pedestrians who jaywalk 2) it is making a huge noise every time it is driven across as it rattles, and is keeping several neighbours and us awake! It has been several nights now; we hoped it would bed and and stop shaking, but it seems to be worsening.

  • This has not been fixed. I cannot go out onto the south Circular to take a photo (and I doubt a wobbly cover looks impressive), but perhaps I can send a recording of exactly how damn loud this is?
