Noisy cover

Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 06:21, Thu 18 February 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2553662.

Good morning,

I'm writing to inform about the cast iron cover which I reported a few months ago is noisy again despite I saw some works being done last night. The road around the cover has been flattened but the cover makes a sharp unpleasant noise every time a car passes over it (which can be a few times every minute).

I reported this issue which was fixed a few weeks ago but it's become very noisy again.

Many thanks in advance.

Best, David

  • Hello, could you please advise when this is going to be looked into? The noise is starting to affect some of our neighbours' sleeping patterns. Thanks.

  • Could you please provide an update on this? It's getting to a point where it's affecting my mental health due to sleeping issues.

  • Hello, I'm a neighbour from St George's Wharf Street and this is really noisy, waking me in the middle of the night. Could you please replace the cover or do something to fix this?

  • Is this ever going to be fixed properly? After one month nothing has changed... unbelievable.
