Trench round drain cover and clanking noise when traffic hits it.

I have complained about this before and the Council have been very quick to help. The drain cover was replaced and tarmac was placed around it. The loud clanking is back and the tarmac has sunk creating, once again, bad vibration when buses go over it. It is troubling. And this goes on until 2am and again starts at 5am. I notice a ‘cross’ on one of the other offending drain covers about 20 feet along. There is one up from it that is driving me mad. So sorry to complain again but it just gets worse and worse. If there is anything that can be done. I would be truly grateful. Best regards. Connel Shaw
