Poorly reinstated pavement following numerous water repairs

The pavement directly outside Violet Court has been dug up numerous times by Southern Water, to repair leaks from the water meters set underground.
Due to the road being narrow, and there being no kerb here, vehicles are always driving on this patch of pavement.
The water meters are encased in plastic, which does not stand the weight of a vehicle driving on it. They get smashed, and the water meters then leak.
The pavement has been poorly reinstated, which is a trip hazard.
To prevent this being an ongoing problem, the water meters either need encasing in something built to be driven on, or they need resiting closer to the building, away from the traffic.
