Dear Lambeth

Norwood Road SE27 re man hole outside 401 (between Avenue Park Rd & Elmcourt Ct road junctions). This man hole has been vibrating for some weeks when traffic has gone over it. You will noticed from the attached picture that one half of the man hole cover has partly dropped down. Please repair this manhole cover including ensuring it no longer vibrates otherwise as you can see in the picture that previous repairs have been carried out but unsuccessfully leading to this further repair.

Kindly note - if you do not reply to me via this report on the website or forwarding the fixmystreet report please include the ref: "Norwood Road 30th March" when you confirm your reference number for this report - thank you.

Thank you.

  • Below copy of an email (edited so email addresses removed) I sent today, 4th Aug 2015 to Lambeth in response to their email of the 27th July :-):

    Dear Streetscene’s

    Re Norwood Road SE27 outside number 401 (ie between Elmcourt Rd & Avenue Park Rd junctions) please see your email below.

    Comment - I first reported this to you via on the 30th March 2015 and noted you put traffic cones & barriers around this very approx first half of June - report/ 613799 I therefore thank you for emailing all utility companies to identify ownership. I presume however this was done much longer ago than 28 days yet this highway hazard is still present as of yesterday. Do you have a time scale for this to be fixed please after all four months has drifted by? All of Norwood Road is a "A" road ie a Trunk Route.

    Thank you.

    Regards Philip
