Rocking manhole making noise

Reported via desktop in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 20:56, Tue 10 May 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3516825.

I am reopening this case that I filed back in April 8th. TfL just closed my case without fixing the manhole.

The 3 manhole cover sitting right In front of the Sainbury's local (516 Commercial Road, E1 0HY) are rocking, and has been creating noises when cars are driving on them

  • Hi, i just saw a kid tipping over on the rocking manholes when he wanted to cross the street. It has now escalated into a safety issue rather than just a noise issue. Could you at least provide a temporary fix on that please? Thanks.
