A47, immediately in front of the Middleton Steakhouse, there are some sunken ironworks.

The sunken ironworks are frequently hit by fast moving HGVs and cause a loud booming noise. The frequency and volume of the noise generated seems to be increasing and keeps local residents awake throughout the night. It would be appreciated if someone could check the ironworks cover and determine if a repair could be affected to remove the disturbance. The issue has been evident since we moved in Nov 21. Planned roadworks early 2022 and recently in June 22 did not address the problem.
