Raised bump causing noise
Reported via mobile in the Pavement Defect (uneven surface / cracked paving slab) category anonymously at 14:38, Wed 1 September 2021
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2972244.
Concrete has been placed over a manhole cover and its very raised (looks like a speed bump). When lorries and vans pass it creates a loud noise and shakes the flat. There's two raised bumps within about 3 meters and cars attempt to dodge it and go into the next lane. Lorries and vans have no choice to go over it, causing so much noise.
This happens all throughout the day and night due to its location.

Yes this is a big problem, not yet fixed. The two raised concrete bumps (actually around 20m apart) act like speed bumps with heavy vehicles going over them all day cause the buildings all around to shake. There is a risk of traffic collisions with vehicles trying to avoid them, and also of structural damage to properties through incessant shaking, please fix this ASAP by flattening them and allowing traffic to pass smoothly. Thank you
