This is a seriously loose and loudly rattling manhole cover in the middle of a busy main road outside residential properties.It is the responsibility of Southern Water who have failed to repair it after nearly two months of complaining to them and getting assurances it would be repaired..We are now all confined to our homes and this noise is very stress inducing.Could you please place a large reflective cone on top of the cover or put a barrier around it so that even if it cannot be repaired further stress to residents and the further deterioration of the cover will be alleviated,Thank you.
