Loose/Noisy Manhole Cover

Reported via desktop in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 10:35, Tue 9 February 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2535353.

Nearest Property Location: 279B High Rd, Tottenham, London N15 4RR, UK Additional Information: There is an iron metal cover that is not fitted properly and every time a vehicle goes over it the vehicles jolt causing a very loud clanging sound that can be heard from the fourth floor and although the noise is very irritating I am more concerned that an accident is likely to occur from the jolt, shock distraction to driver on this very busy road.

  • These pictures show how the man hole was before being reported after and the last one shows how it is currently. It seems that tar was used but it was only done on the 6th of February and it is now the 19th of February and the tar is worn off and the metal grate is revealed again and this issue is not resolved
