Sunken manhole #5

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 12:30, Wednesday 12 January 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3235096.

This manhole has sunken and the tarmac has been depressed. Cyclists try and ride around it and nearly get clipped my cars and lorries.

The vibration from traffic shakes my house 24/7, there is no escape from it! Back on the prescribed anti-anxiety drugs because of this.

The noise from the broken manhole covers is like being next to a train track, the banging is endless :(

I have been on to my MP about this. This manhole was patched at the start of the year and it's already deteriorated.

This section of road suffers from a collapsed drain/subsidence and needs to be flattened and resurfaced.
