There is a loose manhole cover in the middle of Commercial Road, London E1 with the junction of Bromley Street and opposite Tower Hamlets Car Pound 585 - 593 Commercial Road, E1 0HJ and the Sainsburys. It's been like it for 2 months. Every time a car drives over it it bangs all night long.

  • It's been 2 weeks since this is shown as fixed and it's still not fixed and louder than anything now. Can you chase it up?

  • Please please please make this banging stop. It is worse now that the warmer weather is here and the windows are open. It must be driving others crazy.

    Please get a fix on it.

  • Can you please check it again? It's getting worst everyday! I can't sleep during the night and to work from home it's also very difficult!

  • Today is the 23rd April and this thing is still making a noise. Not heard anything from TFL, no updates, nothing. Does our quality of life not matter to you?

  • Can you please update me as this issue is still on-going and the noise is non-stopping night and day?

  • Please can you stop updating this as "fixed". As it is not. The manhole cover is the responsibility of Virgin Media, TFL advised me of this, yet they advised me yesterday that they are trying to figure out who is responsible!!!!

    Please get this sorted, on the noise scale, it peaks at 78db, well of the legal limit of 65db for general noise.

  • Dear TFL,

    Again, no updates from you, nothing. Your a waste of space just like the Mayor of London.

    When are you going to get this fixed?
