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.
Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. It is much appreciated. This has been investigated and we have now referred it to our contractors. If it is confirmed as a safety issue it will be made safe within two hours. If the manhole cover is owned by us, we will carry out a permanent repair at a later date. If it is owned by another company this will be passed to them for a permanent repair. Should you need anything else or have any questions, you may wish to contact our customer services team on 0343 222 1234
Please also be aware that, all Action Scheduled reports are automatically closed after 28 days. However, the fault will be fixed within this timescale, which may be sooner, or in a few cases take a little longer
