Damaged Manhole Cover

Reported via desktop in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 12:03, Tuesday 21 September 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3015447.

The manhole cover here is damaged. It is moving and banging when driven over. It has already been reported and tarmacked over several times, but after a couple of weeks the tarmac deteriorates and the problem returns.

Cyclists regularly use this lane and someone is bound to get hurt eventually. Please find a more permanent solution
