I think the cover is loose and so when ever a car drives over it, it makes a very loud noise that I can hear even in the house (we are not the nearest house to it). It’s a very busy road and the noise of the drain cover is constant when traffic is heavy (most of the day). It has been doing this for some time. The cover is located on the A4074 at the end of Wharf Road outside the Kingfisher Pub.
