  • This problem is getting worse. More of the road round the cover has broken away and the frame of the cover now rocks as traffic passes over it. As this is within the pedestrian crossing it is a danger to pedestrians. I have stepped in the hole and nearly fallen and many children use this crossing.

  • This needs fixing urgently, loose stones around manhole which is loose and bangs every time you drive over it. Within pedestrian crossing. Dangerous as people/children crossing are hurting themselves in dark if they dont know its broken and twisting ankle. This has been broken long enough now and reported numerous times
