Sunken and very noisy drain/utility/manhole cover in road on main A338

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 06:53, Fri 16 November 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

This sunken and very noisy cover was reported 6 months ago and never fixed despite several reportings and it’s now disappeared off fixmystreet. Please, please fix asap as the noise from it is constant because of the very busy main road traffic and intolerable.

Council ref: ENQ18819661

  • This is getting worse - really bad now and deep. Why are we having to wait so long to get this repaired? Felt sure my car was going to be damaged when I drove over the sunken manhole today.
