This manhole has been loose and raised above the surrounding asphalt for months and causes constant noise nuisance at all times of day and night when traffic passes over it and causing sleep disturbance every night.

  • The road surface surrounding this manhole has receded. The noise nuisance from vehicles passing over the raised ironworks causes sleep disturbance every night. Operative visited back in June and said it was Openreach’s problem. It may be their manhole but it is the road surface that is the problem. I believe Lingfield Road is to be ‘patched’ imminently and I would ask that this problem be addressed then. Thank you.
