  • Endorse the above description . The tarmac is breaking up and the whole unit is now rocking. The noise is very loud especially at night.

  • Here is the cover and it is clearly loose. I have contacted my local County Councillor to help get this faulty cover fixed properly. When the cover is rolled over by a vehicle it sounds loud and is disturbing sleep at night.
