Half of the manhole cover is missing on the inside lane southbound on the north circular, where it passes over the railway coming out of Kew Bridge station. It is a very dangerous situation.

The manhole cover has been placed back, but it is tilted, a corner of it pokes out of the surface, still highly dangerous for vehicles!
