  • It is now 24 hours since I reported this highly dangerous defect, TfL have not even been out to cone it off, the manhole cover is broken into 4 pieces now and as it is being pummelled by buses every few minutes it will not be long until it collapses in on itself, leaving an unprotected 4 feet hole in the road, I do not feel this is being treated as urgently as it should be and would hope it is rectified or protected as soon as possible. Kind regards, Michael O'Sullivan
