  • This manhole/drain cover has been getting worse over the last 10 days and is getting noiser. Vehicles are unable to miss it when traffic coming in opposite direction. The noise must be awful for properties closer to it than we are and is continuous due to the volume of traffic and heavy/large vehicles using this stretch of road.

  • This manhole is an accident waiting to happen - with the other half of the road closed due to road works, every single vehicle hits this and it is extremely close to collapsing and injuring someone. Why have the roadworks prior to this manhole being sorted is beyond belief. It needs sorting URGENTLY!
