Large holes in paving around manhole cover
Reported via mobile in the Pavement Defect (uneven surface / cracked paving slab) category anonymously at 22:25, Sunday 27 March 2022
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3419967.
The paving around the manhole cover has come off and there is now a large hole which is very dangerous to cyclists especially. It looks like the manhole cover was repaired recently albeit badly as the paving around it has already come off. If they fill it with the right bitumen quickly maybe the original repair can be saved or left much longer the whole thing will have to be redone.
