Broken Drain/Manhole cover

Reported via mobile in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 07:04, Fri 22 September 2023

Sent to Torbay Borough Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5019855.

The drain/Manhole cover bangs every single time a vehicle drives over it. Being the main route in and out of the town, we get buses, lorries, cars etc driving over it. It's getting louder as the weeks go on so it's only a matter of time before it completely gives way and causes damage to a vehicle. Its banging literally every second during the day as people drive over it. And wakes us up during the night as it's so loud.
