Hi following the work by Gigaclear along Woodlands Road this small inspection frame has been broken and the cover does not fit properly. This causes a trip hazard and has been observed having come off, completley causing danger to pedestrians falling in the chamber.
Council ref: ENQ22934595
Thank you for your enquiry. This issue has been passed onto the relevant team for investigation.

Today I watched an elderly woman fall through this cover. I ran over to help as she was injured quite badly. I would like to see some priority placed here or some temporary markers warning people of the hazard, as it gets darker this will only happen more often!
