  • If I was to drive over this raised drain cover it would damage the underside of my car. It has got worse and needs attention.

    This is getting more if a hazard as the road surrounding the manhole is breaking away. Yellow warning lines around the problem have worn away too.

    This is continuing to deteriorate and the surface nearby is also beginning to break up.
