This manhole cover has been loose for months. It’s getting louder and louder as time goes on. I live in Queens Road and can hear every time a bus/car drives over it, inside my house.

  • This is the manhole cover. I have a video of the noise it makes when vehicles drive over it but this site won’t allow me to upload a video, only a photo.

  • This manhole cover is next to the bus stop. It is noisy enough to wake babies and frighten young children.

  • How long does it take TFL to identify who this manhole cover belongs to? I first reported this on 7th August. It’s now 13th September and all that’s happened is the clank clanking noise it makes every time a vehicle drives over it, has gotten even louder. It sounds like gunshots.
