Hi, I've reported this cover already, but after only a month since the last repair, it's broken again and makes a loud clacking sound every time it's driven over, which is 10-15 times a minute, 24 hours a day as it's on the highway.
This has now been repaired 4-5 times yet it keeps breaking and making more noise - please can it be fixed properly and finally as it's a huge disruption to those who live/work near this spot.
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

A better photo of the manhole that is causing sleepless nights for hundreds of families near or on the highway.
