Manhole loose and noisy

Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 08:54, Sat 17 July 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2870903.

Manhole on St George’s Road (outside St George’s Buildings) is still loose and very noisy and disruptive every time a vehicle drives over it. Each time it’s reported over a time period it seems that somebody comes and just pours tarmac over it without actually securing the manhole cover properly. Within a day or so inevitably as it’s a busy road tarmac wears off and it is very noisy again! Sorry but TFl is wasting time and money doing this shoddy ‘quick fix’ over and over again with no lasting resolution to the problem. Please fix it properly once and for all by either replacing the cover fully or actually securing it in a way that will last!!
