Hi there, this is on the road a12 going towards Bow has been occuring for the last 2 weeks or so. I've highlighted it on the map (see images). The main drain in question is where the left wheels hit on the left lane - I've attached images. Please can you look into this? It's very loud and all vehicles are hitting it constantly. Massive noises/thudders with larger vehicles literally 24/7 disturbing residents. The road is very uneven where the drain is, it almost needs to be resurfaced there, evened out or a much stronger drain fitted. The noise is constant and it doesn't seem safe for vehicles particularly large vehicles carrying heavy goods. Thanks
