Rocking manhole causing danger and noise
Reported via desktop in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 15:08, Thursday 9 June 2022
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3583953.
I am reopening this request again as TfL closed my case without fixing the problem.
The 5 manhole cover sitting right In front of the Sainbury's local (516 Commercial Road, E1 0HY) has been rocking for 2 months. I have seen people tipping over when they are crossing the road. And it has been creating noises when cars are driving on them
I first reported this problem on April 8th. TfL closed the case on May 10th without fixing it. I raised the report again and TfL closed the case again on June 8th without fixing it.
Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. It is much appreciated. This has been investigated and we have now referred it to our contractors. If it is confirmed as a safety issue it will be made safe within two hours. If the manhole cover is owned by us, we will carry out a permanent repair at a later date. If it is owned by another company this will be passed to them for a permanent repair.
