  • There is a noisy manhole cover opposite Asdas just before the lights and outside Eric Wilkins House SE1 5ES. It clunks everytime a vehicle goes over it. It is the one nearest the kerb

  • There is opposite Asdas just before the lights and outside Eric Wilkins House SE1 5ES. It clunks loudly everytime a vehicle goes over it. It is the one nearest the kerb. This keeps happening and last time it was repaired it was covered with tarmac. The tarmac has now warn away, hence the return of the noise.
