Manhole cover constantly making noise and making it impossible to sleep.

There are a couple of manhole covers that are loose making a loud banging noise each time traffic passes over them, this is happening all times of the day and night which is making it impossible to sleep or rest. This has been going on for months with no action or result being taken from my neighbours making complaints. The manhole is situated at the junction of Marshall Drive and Botley Road SO30 3HA at the traffic lights.

  • Merton Council are unable to clarify this location. The plotting shows a location that falls on TfL Red Route, but is also at a location where there is no manhole cover. The description itself states SO23 which is in Winchester, this is well outside of Mertons Borough Boundary

  • That’s because this is not Merton, it’s Eastleigh council in Hampshire. I’m not sure way the map shows Merton as I never selected a location. The exact location is Marshall Drive/Botley Road SO30 (Eastleigh Borough Council)
