Cast iron drain cover loose on railway bridge

Sent to Solihull Borough Council 3 minutes later

On the bridge - between the traffic lights, on the Spencers Lane side - the drain cover is now completely detached and risks tipping up under a heavy lorry. Water is entering the foundations of the bridge.

The Highway dept might consider reducing the weight limit on this bridge as it is constantly used by maximum weight artic lorries of 40 tons+. Their cornering will constantly rip up this manhole on the bend.
