  • As per the above i write on behalf of anglian water to confirm that on our visit our engineer advised - Very noisy rocking highways cover. The Thames water owned FW cover next to the highways m/h has been replaced recently. We have no assets in the the area. Advised customer FTF to contact Northants highways.

  • This was "fixed" today, however the manhole cover is making the noise again and now every time a lorry drives over the manhole (which there are lots of especially through the night) you can hear the contents of the lorry rumbling around and my house literally vibrates as a hump as been created in the road.

  • While the noisy man hole covers have been replaced, the remedial works have consistent of building up the road surface around the cover. This has stopped the manhold cover from moving, but results in significant noise whenever a goods vehicle travels over the bump. Any lorry that travels over the bump during the day and night is violently shaken by the bump, and the noise is causing sleep disturbance to residents. The noise pollution caused is equalvent to that caused by the original issue.
