Manhole cover rocking - extremely loud

Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 09:21, Fri 4 February 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3288852.

This was reported but changed to ‘fixed’. It is not fixed and it has now been 2 months since initially reported. This is getting ridiculous. The noise is extremely loud and keeping my family awake at night. This is not fair

  • Hi, I would also like to report this as an issue. This has been ongoing for a while now and every time a vehicle goes over the cover results in two loud bangs. This is a very busy route and is causing a high level of noise at all hours

  • This is still not fixed. It’s coming up to 3 months since this was first reported. I have sent photos and videos to TFL about this and nothing has been done. Why?
