These are really very noisy. I regret I cannot ID the utility responsible. I can see some blue paint from a previous repair so it might be Thames Water.

  • Two manholes received attention a few weeks ago (with associated traffic disruption) and fresh tarmac but the noise is still appalling. Please investigate.

  • Thank you for your report, an inspector has been out to this location and I can advise this matter has been passed to Thames Water as the manholes belong to them. I have now forwarded this onto the NRSWA Team at Oxfordshire County Council to chase this issue with Thames Water as our request has not been actioned. Oxfordshire County Council are the Highway authority they are therefore able to enforce this we can only request utility companies to fix issues we cannot enforce.
