  • Agree with the above report - the relevant manhole is the one in the middle of the road adjacent to the 'S' bus stop. The noise happens throughout the day and night as cars drive over the manhole is very loud. Noticed the sound after relatively recent roadworks.

  • This issue has not been resolved, despite the status being changed to 'fixed'. The noise is still occurring. There are currently works occurring in the same area for gas related matters, so perhaps tfl staff assisting on that job can look into this further.
