Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 22:28, Mon 21 February 2022
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3333030.
The manhole is rocking and dangerous again - third time in four months. The issue is the manhole frame is loose which is causing the lid to slam very loudly. Past attempts to pave over the manhole were shoddy and isn’t fixing the root of the problem which is the manhole lid and frame. Please fix this instead of paving over ASAP

This is incredibly noisy and dangerous if on a bicycle. It’s been a source of complaints for several years. Why can it not be fixed for good.
