Loud noise from manhole cover due to traffic

Reported via desktop in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 13:42, Tue 24 November 2020

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2403207.

There is a manhole cover that rocks in line with where most traffic on Cavendish roads wheels pass, making a loud clinking noise. It prevents us getting to sleep until very late at night and also wakes us up very early in the morning. It has got significantly worse in the last few days. I've taken a video of this happening if that would be of use.

  • The manhole cover makes loads of noise every minute of the day. Last time there was a very bad temporary fix with tarmac put on top of the manhole cover which clearly didn’t last. Would be good if this was fixed soon and permanently please.
