Lethal defective manhole cover + damaged road

Reported in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 10:26, Fri 4 September 2020

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2278004.

There is a manhole cover that has previously had quick fix and make do repairs that has once again become defective. It sicks every time a truck drives over it making a huge noise and rocking the nearby houses. I have seen cyclists swerving the hole in the road dangerously into lane 2 of a busy road. The issue has been getting worse for the past few weeks and I can only imagine will continue this way and cause a serious accident very soon
