Manhole cover make a very loud double bang every time a vehicle wheel goes over it. Sleeping is very difficult. This issue has been ongoing for 2 years. Temporary fix last summer but now bad as ever. There are 2 manhole covers but it is the one closest to the verge - see picture. We are at our wits end, please can you help. Thankyou

  • Please advise when we can expect this to be fixed. The constant bang bang every few minutes is intolerable. Shortly after we notified you in February, the outline of the drain was marked in white, indicating that someone had been out to inspect, but nothing has been done and the white outline has long since been washed away.. There are numerous teams of workers digging up the road all around Wallingford, could one of these not be diverted to fix this problem - please?
