  • Hi,

    There's a noisy lose manhole cover to the right out of New Cross Gate station and opposite Sainsbury's petrol station.

    It makes a loud popping sound when traffic drives over it. Please help fix it.

    Thanks - William

  • These are two different manhole covers. The one I (William) reported is closer to New Cross Gate train station opposite Sainsbury's petrol station.

    Thanks for the updates - William
