Very loud "clang" each time a cars/lorry/bus drives over loose manhole cover. Needs fixing.

  • Getting worse by the day. We live 250m. away and can hear it clearly. Hole developing around the edge.

  • This problem with this manhole cover has reached the stage of an emergency now, it has been reported several times. Someone came and put a bit of tarmac on it, it lasted one day. I cannot get any sleep with this noise every time a vehicle goes over it and it looks as though it may collapse soon and kill someone. It needs repairing properly now!!!!!!!!

  • This is now urgent and getting dangerous and near collapse. Will cause an accident especially motorbikes. Besides the awful noise.
