Large manhole cover loose and extremely noisy

A series of circa 3 steel manhole covers are causing excessive noise and disturbance on the main A417 Reading road when vehicles pass over them - at least one is loose and moving in its mount. The noise is extremely loud, especially when heavy goods vehicles pass over the covers, and is an environmental noise nuisance and as the covers are clearly moving they pose a health and safety risk to road users, especially cyclists and motorcyclists.

No action still taken on this despite it originally been reported 4 or 5 months ago in a previous report - unacceptable. The noise is a real nuisance and is as a result of major roadworks that were carried out on the A417 circa 1 year ago not reinstalling the covers correctly. The cover(s) are getting looser and noisier each week - needs investigation and repair please!
