Rocking cover making load noise. Will break at some point closing road. Been like this for 3+ weeks.

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Westbound on A40 as you cross over pedestrian crossing before joining the Wolvercote roundabout. Very loud noise as cars drive over it. If this breaks the lane will be unusable.

Council ref: ENQ20869127

  • I saw that this had been reported but still no action to get it fixed. The noise of the continual traffic hitting this rocking manhole cover 24 hours a day is disturbing sleep.

  • Yes, if this is not a priority I hate to think how bad the general state of the roads must be!
