Loose and noisy manhole cover on Slateford Road at entrance to Hermand Street

Sent to Edinburgh City Council less than a minute later

Heavy road usage on Slateford Road has caused this manhole cover to become loose and it bangs when vehicles drive over it. Even with double glazing it is a constant presence in my flat and is driving me to despair as there is no respite. It is worse in the the early hours as I can't drown it out with music or TV and it is disturbing my sleep. This same problem was reported a few years back and fixed. I reported it again directly to Edinburgh Council on 19/05/20 when it started anew and given a ref 101000202820. I received an email on 20/05 which said 'the job associated with your enquiry has now been completed'. It clearly wasn't looked into.
