The manhole cover on Stanstead road eastbound is like a pothole
Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 14:16, Mon 25 April 2022
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3481478.
The manhole cover periodically gets resurfaced but it always breaks down fairly quickly. It turns to pretty much a pothole and is extremely loud especially when heavier vehicle go over it. HGVs travelling at 30 mph or more will huge noise and vibration. I live almost 20-30M away and I can feel the vibration in my bedroom (as well as the noise). A better solution needs to be found instead of once again resurfacing and have that deteriorate quickly. It’s a recurring issue over the past few years. Fix it for good please.
