  • This has been going on for months and several reports have been made and no change - the manhole has in fact got louder over recent weeks.

    Please prioritise fixing this.

  • Hi, I have circled the noisy manhole on these pictures, which apparently has been reported as issue a while ago. I have also sent a video via email. Please sort this out as soon as possible as it is getting impossible to sleep at night.

  • Hi,

    The noise is getting unbearable and it’s been months now since this was reported. Please fix it ASAP.

  • Manhole still very loud, makes sleeping in road facing bedrooms challenging.

    Was previously fixed but continued to make noise.
