Following works to new properties, the reinstatement of the carriageway around a manhole cover is of particularly poor quality and is sinking almost daily leading to a significant chance of causing serious injury to cyclists and damage to vehicles

Problem reported again under another case. Utilities company contacted again by council about 2 weeks ago but nothing happened. Road is cracking and fills with water when it rains. Additionally this pothole around the manhole cover and the trench dug across the road by another company are violently shaking houses.

For clarification: Vehicles going over the poor work in the road, are bumping when they go over the pothole and the houses next to them are shaking violently when this happens (about about 2 minutes or more at peak times). The entire of my house and next door, shakes violently and I'm concerned about noise and damage to my property as well as the services running under the road and the vehicles going over the holes. The trench issue is because the filling for the trench isn't level with the road so there's a sudden dip. This means each vehicle causes 2 shakes for both sets of wheels.
