  • Still open, via questionnaire, 21:14, Wednesday 18 September 2019

  • Still not fixed. Is really cheaper to keep coming out and patching up Than to fix it. Now they are going to have to replace the manhole cover as they have tarmacked over it. BLOODY IDIOTS

    Thank you for your recent email concerning the rocking inspection cover outside 150 Beddington Lane.

    This chamber was first identified as defective on the 27th August 2019 in which case was highlighted to our Streetworks team. They would then raise a Section 81 response with the utility company responsible for the maintenance of the chamber.

    The responsible company, COLT communication have now attended site to make safe the location by the placement of asphalt on top of the cover whilst they programme in the repair and gain the necessary permit needed to carry out work on the highway. This location has also been monitored by the myself and when the temporary make safe has failed I have also requested for our contractors to attend site to fill any potholes caused by the movement of this chamber.

    Defects of this kind are checked for progress as normal practise and I will make enquiry as to how close we are to having the full reinstatement carried out.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any further assistance.

    Thank you,

    -- Kind regards

    Jason Lockett
