  • Thank you for your report. I thought these covers were the responsibility of Thames Water, however this is not the case. I have spoken to the Road Agreements Team and they advised there is an agreement in place with a company called Hammerson. I have emailed the Orchard Centre and they have received confirmation today from the property manager that there is indeed a road agreement in place for Hammerson to maintain the road and carry out repairs. The Orchard Centre advised that they have hired a road plate to go over the manhole cover which will be delivered to site tomorrow. They were expecting to speak to their maintenance contractors on Monday, unless one of them responds over the weekend. I hope this is of help to you. This report is now closed.
