  • The tarmac has eroded again & keeps eroding. This has caused corner of man hole to surface & is particular danger to cyclists & motorbikes. The man hole keeps making sounds when vehicles pass over which is causing sleep problems. Please another option be looked at other than tarmacing over again if possible, as it keeps eroding.
