  • Outside 301 kingsland road, e8 4ds. in the bus land a loose manhole cover. ( not virgin media / not thames water ). loose manhole cover outside 301 kingsland road e8 4ds. thames water have been and investigated it 2 weeks ago and told me that its a tfl owned man hole cover. it 'clunks' everytime a bus travels over it . its in the bus lane so it clunks all day and night. i live/work from home and my flat is 3rd floor roadside. the flat shakes when the manhole cover is driven over by a bus. its on the a10 ( kingsland road ) which is a major bus route, therefore clunking is all the time . ive pout a cone over it and the buses avoid driving over it but inevitably the cones is moved aside by traffic wardens etc. ive emailed tfl 3 x times and have had no answer at all . the email address im sending the info to tfl is customerservices@tfl.gov.uk
