Loose manhole cover, still loose TFL
Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 06:51, Tue 9 November 2021
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3112300.
We’ve reported in August, TFL keeps on closing the case on this website, however it’s still not fixed. We managed to speak with TFL contractors who were only called out 3 weeks ago, who shared also being frustrated having to come to the same spot so frequently in a short period, and that TFL has no record who actually maintains the manhole cover. They were only there to inspect. NOTHING has happened since and merely 3 months later the manhole cover is still loose, causing nuisance and stress. The contractors shared this was the case at another TFL road and residents just removed the cover, which we will be doing next.
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.
