Report of sunken manhole covers/trip hazard

Reported via desktop in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 11:31, Wed 18 August 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2942990.

Comments: Resident called Wandsworth on street services to advise that Thames Water have been out fitting the water meters and the pavement that they have filled back in, has sunk. There is a cover over these water meters and they have sunk below the level of the pavement, this has left a trip hazard. On the road there is a park and the common on the other side, so it is a busy pedestrianised area and customer was concerned about people tripping, however Elspeth Road is a red route and under TFL jurisdiction.

85 Elspeth Rd, London SW11 1DP
