Email 1 of 3 The pathway has sunken by 18.5cm from the road to the manhole cover. This has left both the manhole cover and another cover raised and a potential trip hazard. Please see emails 2 and 3 of 3 for pictures. The path has sunken that much that we are unable to access our driveway with one car and the other has been damaged by the raised manhole cover.
