Rocking gully covers on corner of New Kent Road just before Meadow Row

Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 13:21, Sat 31 July 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2904319.

The covers are heavily rocking again for the third time in 2021 (after already being repaired twice this year) after the recent storms and has got steadily worse over 10 days. This is caused by heavy traffic going over the covers making the covers clang against one another. At peak times, the noise is every second 24 hours a day.

Over 600+ residents of all ages are affected by this within the 75m radius of the gully covers which is causing chronically disturbed sleep and rest.
