    Please can you confirm an update when the manhole cover will be fixed to prevent the 24 hour noise of it smashing / rocking when driven over - this is keeping local families awake at night

  • Can you confirm any estimate of how long this will take. It appears a large part of the highway has loose manhole covers all of these continue to make a noise nuisance day and night. We hope this can be resolved soon as an urgent matter

  • FMS3082067 - Now coming up to three weeks of continuing 24 hour smashing of manholes covers - we have been unable to sleep and its effecting local families mental health. We have jobs which are dangerous to continue if we have a lack of sleep any any TFL employees who live in this area and are affecting by the 24 hour smashing noises are likely to be putting the public at risk driving trains ./ buses etc - this has now also been raised with LBTH council and will be raised with local councillers and also to local press and social media. It appears other repairs have been fixed only 100 metres away form this issue but this continues to be left unresolved no response at all from TFL of any sort - this issue is a danger to the public and mental health and requires a response
