Rocking manhole cover causing building to vibrate

Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 20:08, Friday 15 January 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2481052.

This was previously reported: TfL ref: FMS2081866. The issue has returned. Please can this be reviewed again.

Original comment: There is a rocking manhole cover in the road. When heavy vehicles run over it the rocking causes a loud clunk and a rocking That can be felt in nearby buildings. Due to the reduced traffic is has become even more noticeable and more of a disturbance and nuisance. There are things which can be done by residents to reduce sound, however there is nothing which can be done to stop the vibrations being felt.

Previous reports complain about a cover in the bus lane. This is not the same location. This is a cover in the east-bound lane, not west-bound bus lane.

The cover is located in front of 250 Pentonville Road next to the white line for the cycle lane.

  • Hi! Is there a status update on this? It has not been fixed. It is a nuisance and on a going problem as the original fix was just covering a man whole with tarmac which I would assume as not a permanent fix.

    Please can this report be updated.
