Loose and very noisy manhole cover on High Road, when leaving Loughton (between Warren Hill and Avenue Gate) travelling from Loughton up to Buckhurst Hill. Making loud noise each time a vehicle drives over it, which is very frequent.

  • Still broken. Actually getting worse in so far that the movement of the manhole cover is causing the surrounding tarmac to break down. Very noisy, disturbs me frequently (I work from home by a window adjacent to the road). Please fix ASAP.
