Description of problem: Manhole cover making huge noise when driver over. The noise is keeping us awake at night, and waking us up in the morning. This is a very busy road and the manhole click and clacking several times a minute. when a car drives over it you can hear it from 300 yards away. We are struggling to sleep most nights, its making our life hell. Most of the house hold on this street reported to the council many times, Nothing happened.As we are tax payers and paying council tax we don't see the point why council is not taking any action to rectify this problem.
