Manhole cover not secured properly

Reported via desktop in the Manhole category anonymously at 08:22, Saturday 6 February 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Manhole cover on road is not properly seated in support. As cars drive over it it rattles around loudly. I live in house adjacent to said cover and it is very noisy, as well as being a potential hazard.

Council ref: ENQ21886652

  • It's nearly three weeks since this was reported: I know that one can't expect everything to be repaired the next day, but please could someone deal with this - as said above, this is noisy and is a hazard. It can only get worse and may cost more to fix the longer it is left in this state

  • Council representative checked and assessed the manhole on Friday 5th March. Next step was for her to identify who is responsible for the manhole to determine who will fix it.
