Sunken manhole with loose cover 21 Lower St

Reported in the Roads/highways category by Matt Cooper at 09:20, Thursday 24 May 2018

Sent to West Sussex County Council 5 minutes later

House being shaken by lorries speeding over sunken trio of BGas access hatches, now noisy as well since they dried out. This is a very long-standing recurrent problem caused by speed, heavy traffic and very poor siting and maintenance of the accesses.

  • Nothing happened after WCC inspected and said they would report the problem to Southern Gas Networks (after1 month) so I contacted them direct. A chap came the same day, cured the clanging, marked up the road for the works team and posted an email saing it would be done 'asap'.
