Loose gully cover makes noise 24 hours/day

The metal manhole cover around the corner of Buchanan Street and Dalmeny Street has come loose from its fitting and makes a loud noise every time a car drives over it.

It has been very difficult to get to sleep, work or do anything that requires silence.

I have noticed that similar issues happened in the past, also disturbing citizen's wellbeing in the same manner. news-2-15012/ sleep-shot-to-bits-by-machine-gun-manhole-cover-1-1202529

I have already reported the problem to the City Council one month ago, but the problem persists.

I expect the manhole cover can be fixed and stop making noises.
