Vibration in nearby Buildings due to Manhole Cover

Reported via desktop in the Manhole category anonymously at 14:10, Tuesday 29 August 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

When HGVs and lorries hit a manhole cover adjacent to 47 Newbury Street it causes nearby buildings to significantly vibrate including 47A and 47B. This has been getting worse as I think the manhole cover and concrete is slowly sinking into the ground, causing increasingly large vibrations. It has been discussed with neighbours.
