Noisy manhole cover

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 09:54, Wed 27 February 2019

Sent to Tower Hamlets Borough Council 1 minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 1556444.

This manhole cover makes a loud noise when cars drive over it, which is very regular on this busy road. It's difficult to sleep with the banging metal sound all the time. This cover has been fixed lots of times in the past as I've lived here for over 6 years, I wish there was a permanent solution instead of reporting it all the time and wasting council time and taxes. Thank you

  • This is still not fixed, got a generic email from TFL saying that they will investigate but it's been a month. This is really loud at night when trying to sleep, it's unacceptable noise pollution on top of an already busy road.

  • It's coming up to two months since this was reported and nothing has been done about it. The cover seems to have become even louder this last week, very frustrating and difficult to sleep at night. TFL please do your job!
