Several manhole covers are broken/loose

Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 23:10, Tuesday 12 October 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3059011.

There are two/three loose man hole covers that make a very loud noise every time a car passes over. As this is on busy Commercial Road, this is happening constantly, all night. One cover was “fixed” during the summer but the others continue to have the problem. It is incredibly disturbing in terms of noise pollution especially during the night. There is no break in traffic so there is no break on the constant noise. It seems this problem has been report before and marked as “fixed” but I assure you that it is not fixed. The noise at night is affecting my mental health.
