Very noisy manhole cover.

Reported via mobile in the Loose/rattling cover/ironwork category anonymously at 19:21, Saturday 23 March 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Gloucestershire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5757558.

The manhole in the middle of the road outside number 49 Lords Hill was partly dug-up last year during major gas mains renewal work. Consequently, each time a vehicle travels over its cover (both uphill and down), it makes a loud rattling noise. The road is narrow, so most vehicles drive onto the cover. The sound is already a considerable nuisance, but is sure to worsen rapidly due to the large volume of traffic on the hill and the fact that most vehicles travelling on it need to cross the manhole cover.
