Manhole cover loose, causing loud sounds when drove over.

Reported via mobile in the Manhole category anonymously at 16:18, Monday 19 October 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The cover is newly installed but seems like wrong size was chosen causing loud noise every time car drives over, as it is in the middle it is literally every car. It is impossible to sleep.

Kind regards Lukas Hyner

Council ref: ENQ20878787

  • Just wanted to update this, i can see it has been reported previously, but unfortunately it is more than one drain cover that doesn't fit properly causing quite a lot of noise in quick succession when when vehicles drive past. It is really loud for the houses in close proximity please can you notify highways and get the problem resolved.

  • Thank you for your report. Our Highways Officer has requested an urgent attendance by a Thames Water engineer to reset the cover outside no 39 Lyne Road. Thank you.
