Constant traffic noise over manhole cover

Reported in the Manhole category anonymously at 11:51, Tuesday 23 July 2019

Sent to East Sussex County Council 4 minutes later

This is one of several manhole covers at the junction with The Park on Crowborough Hill. I live in Holmes Place and the constant noise created by cars (mostly speeding!) passing over them is infuriating and intrusive even with windows closed. I believe it is the manhole pictured that is causing the main problem, possibly not the cover itself but the tyre noise created by the badly filled in tarmac edges. It has been getting louder and louder over the past few months. I have recorded the noise from my window but cannot attach sound files.
