  • Thank you for your report. I visited the site you pinpointed on the map but could not find the defect you refer to. You had placed the map pin in the wrong location. After looking at your location description, however, 'outside Wallbrook Court', I managed to find it, see photos.

    'Manhole cover is sinking' defect you refer to. You had placed the map pin in the wrong location. After looking at your location description, however, 'outside Wallbrook Court', I managed to find it, see photos. I have put a cone on it to make the site safe, see photo, and we are now investigating to see who owns it and is responsible for repairing it.
    Regarding the 'the pavement is breaking apart' defects you refer to, these defects, unfortunately, don't meet our current intervention criteria so I cannot arrange a repair. We will continue to monitor these during our routine inspections.
