Loose and very noisy manhole cover near traffic lights.

A square manhole cover, marked 'Thames Water', has become increasingly unstable over the past few months. It's on a very busy road and the noise is stressful and keeping local residents up at night.

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • 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. Reference number CRN140984 and CRN146022. 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.
