The grate rattles when driven over. Bolts seem absent.

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2443487.

Since the gully was reparied in the summer, the new grate has gradually become "loose" and now clangs loudly when driven over. This will inevitable lead to failure at some point. The situation has developed over the last 2 months or so.

  • The gully is now settling lower than it was before the repair. It not only rattles but now vibrates the ground becasue it is too low. The backing kerb is now also cracked and the patch is failing. A proper repair at the same level as the carriageway is needed to avoid the vibrations and the inevitable repeat of the settling issue.
