Manhole cover loose and noisy then bus/truck go over it
Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 22:00, Mon 31 January 2022
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3280649.
The manhole cover is cracked in two down the middle, lose and very noisy when large vehicles go over it. The manhole was repaired by Tfl less than 6 months ago when ( it was sunken in and had huge holes around it) but it’s already broken again, and the round cover is cracked into two pieces which is very dangerous as either or both pieces could soon fall into the whole and leave the manhole completely exposed. Please fix urgently for health and safety reasons.
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.
