The manhole cover on the footpath near Bowls Club lifts every time it rains. This never used to happen but seems to have started since the building of the NKDC housing at Bonner Close. Water pours out from cover during rainfall suggesting a possble restriction or blockage in the drain. When the rain stops the cover sometimes falls back into place but is often displaced causing a trip hazard.

  • The area of the path around the cover has been repaired by laying new tarmac. However the problem of the drain not coping in heavy rain has not been addressed as far as I am aware.
