St. John’s Wood Road

I am writing to complain about an issue with Transport.

I have already raised my issue before, but I feel that my issue is still unresolved, hence my need to involve you in helping to resolve this problem.

Here is what happened: Dear Sir, There are three - four loose manhole covers on St. John’s Wood road , right opposite lords view one building and there is constant non-stop traffic on this road through the day and night. Every time a vehicle goes over these manhole covers and because the potholes covers are so loose, it makes a huge amount of clanging and banging noise throughout the day . It is a big nuisance for all residents of Lords Views One since due to construction work at One, St. John’s Wood road since early last year plus this noise due to loose manhole covers , it has become unbearable since last few months. The windows at lords view one are not double glazed so there is ZERO noise filtration . I request you to pls look into some road repair to fix the loose manhole covers so that atleast the residents can get a decent night sleep. I hope some action is taken urgently in this matter.

I hope some action is taken urgently in this matter of these 3 -4 manhole covers and the covers are fixed so that they don’t make so much noise when a vehicle runs over it.

Please reply back via this email address, as I would like to keep all my communications in one place.

Yours sincerely,

Priya Sinha Flat 7, Lords View St. Johns Wood, NW87HJ
