Noisy Manhole Covers

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 16:15, Saturday 13 May 2023

Sent to Norfolk County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4550175.

The manhole covers on our street are causing a lot of noise disturbance that is affecting my work and sleep. Myself and husband work from home and the constant Clunk Clunk, of every car that hits the covers makes it very difficult to concentrate on work, and it disrupts zoom calls. It's also severely affecting my sleep, waking me several times a night and early morning when the traffic builds up. The estate is very busy, with constant traffic. The manhole covers in question are, upon entering Albini Way; the first one, the fifth one and the ninth one. There are many others as you proceed around the estate but I can only hear these ones. They seem to have been positioned in the road where every car will hit them. You can clearly see by the worn down metal where the cars are hitting them. Several of my neighbours have also complained and are still waiting for a response. It was apparent from the first day I moved into the property in October 2022. The noise pulls me out of conversations and thoughts and is affecting my mental health in a bad way, along with my work and sleep. Please rectify this issue at your earliest convenience.

Regards H Robertson
