Unlevel / unfixed, possibly unsafe manhole cover on A44 at junction with Rectory Lane.

Reported via desktop in the Manhole category anonymously at 22:47, Wednesday 6 January 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2465152.

The manhole cover appears to have sunken at one end and appears loose and as a consequence makes a significant noise as traffic drives over it. I’m unsure if it is unsafe but has become worse and louder over past two months.
