Clanking metal Thames Water plate in road

This Thames water plate outside 2 Hoxton Street N1 6NG clanks loudly whenever a vehicle drives over it. The tarmac around it has degraded and it is sinking unevenly. The noise is annoying, even though I have double glazing. It started a few weeks ago.

  • Hackney Council workmen turned up within days, rang me to discuss the problem and contacted Thames Water. They came and reset the plate a day or two later. Excellent service. (My only slight concern is that the plate is now a bit lower than the road surface, and vehicles repeatedly dropping on to it may make the problem recur sooner than it otherwise would.)

    State changed to: Fixed
