Noisy, damaged manhole cover causing property to shake

Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 10:42, Wednesday 4 January 2023

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4084640.

The manhole cover in road is loose and showing fast significant signs of damage as more and more vehicles drive over it. It’s quickly becoming worse and is causing my property to shake when HGVs/buses drive over it. This same manhole cover has had at least 3 lots of remedial works carried out on it since I’ve lived here in the past 7 years. It seems to be the same recurring problem.
