Manhole cover opposite 14 Finmore Road

Reported via desktop in the Manhole category anonymously at 16:45, Thursday 4 August 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Every time a vehicle goes over this manhole cover it makes a loud clanking noise. This has been going on for some time and has woken up neighbours during the night. It's most annoying.

Council ref: ENQ22931025

  • Thank you for your report. Here is an update: Thames Water have surveyed the site, and reviewed their plans and records, they do not believe this to be Thames Waters apparatus. This, therefore, appears to be one of our catchpits. Unfortunately, as this issue doesn't meet our current immediate intervention criteria, I cannot arrange a prompt repair. It has been placed on the list of Minor Civils jobs to be implemented at a future date, subject to there being no conflicting works and sufficient funds. We will continue to monitor this site during our routine inspections.

  • Thank you for your report. Here is a further update: I have visited this site again, recently, and noted that the manhole cover has been repaired by Thames Water, see latest photos. This manhole cover defect report was not the responsibility of Oxfordshire County Council after all and was the responsibility of Thames Water. I am therefore closing this report.
