Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3082061.

Hi i am not satisfied with this amount of time it has taken for a reply for a permanent fix to the issue. one of the manhole was covered by tarmac but now it has started to come of and the sound is back the grated manhole has not been fixed the noise is till prevalent but not as bad as the tarmac one. This has gone far to long enough to endure affected the quality of life withing 50 metres for 5plus months of non stop reporting.
