Bromley's noisiest manhole cover

Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 21:44, Monday 1 March 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2580758.

This manhole cover might be damaged or loose as the noise is getting intolerable and was never this bad. Really loud noise anytime a car drives over it which is really frequent on this busy road. Please can it be looked into/fixed? Thank you so much for your help with this! Much appreciated by all the local residents . Thank you

  • Hi thank you very much for the update. It's still banging constantly - by fixed do you mean it's been noted and investigated/in progress? Thank you in advance as the constant loud clanking is a real nuisance for us local residents. Thanks again - much appreciated.
