Rocking Manhole Cover

Reported via desktop in the Pavement and road repairs category anonymously at 17:32, Tue 20 October 2020

Sent to Brighton and Hove City Council less than a minute later

On the eastern section of the crossroads between Montpelier Road and Western Road, a manhole cover is losing it's seating. It appears as though repair works to the frame and surround has failed, and is progressively worsening. It is producing a loud knocking whenever it is trafficked, which is becoming louder each week. It is assumed to be close to failure, which would create a significant impact on traffic to repair. The issue has become worse over the previous few months, starting before summer 2020.

  • This has become seriously worse since first reported. The noise level has become unacceptable especially at night when vehicles drive over it.
