A Drain Cover - Damaged problem has been found by a member of public and reported on 14th November: The cover of the drain on the east corner of Battersea Bridge by the stairs down to the river walk has broken and fallen into what is a very deep hole. It was replaced recently and has broken again. It needs fixing properly, not just balancing the cover over the hole. Lorroes, trucks and buses often hit the drain when they're cutting the corner turning onto Battersea Bridge and it's clear that the current arrangement is not strong enough to withstand heavy traffic. Plus it's a HUGE hazard for pedestrians. Please fix it properly. Thank you. -------------------- Site: CHEYNE WALK Location: Flat 25 Blantyre Tower, World's End Estate, LONDON, SW10 0EHOpen Space Adjacent To Battersea Bridge, Cheyne Walk
