Broken manhole cover. Unbearable amount of noise being created by passing traffic.

Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 06:01, Thu 5 November 2020

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2371697.

The noise is intolerable. Sounds like a gunshot when a bus drives over it. Manhole belongs to Thames water. I have been waiting since 27 Aug for them to fix it. They put temporary tarmac down which has now worn away completely. Reported again on 28 Oct and got them out to look at it again. They agreed that it was unsafe and that noise was ‘ridiculously loud’ but there now seems to be some dispute over who is responsible for fixing it. Please just sort it out as the noise is unbearable.
