I have reported this problem before but it is getting worse. It is two fold> 1. The gutter drain and two manholes are depressed and multi wheeled vehicles hit one after the other causing a resonant shockwave to our property. 2. The inside lane design means that such lorries continually hit and damage the kerb exacerbating the problem. The location is on the eastbound A40 outside No 2 Sunderland Avenue

  • A related problem. Despite a repair carried out 4 weeks ago to a manhole cover near the traffic lights on A40 eastbound at Cutteslowe roundabout it and the three manhole covers to the west up to 2 Sunderland Avenue are all loose and rattling every time a vehicle traverses
