I think the raod around the manole cover is desintigrating and sinking. This has been occuring for approx. 3 months. Vehicles are driving over it and repeating damaging it. it has become so damaged that lumps of debris are now ending up in the road. In addition the manhole is completing blocked so no draining is occurring. when raining this floods and people cannot see the damaged area to avoid it. All manhole covers near this stretch of road appear blocked which i will report separately.
