Loose manhole cover

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 22:15, Wed 21 December 2016

Sent to Hackney Council 5 minutes later

This manhole cover has been loose for over 2 months. It is between the Texaco garage and 250 City Road. Every time a vehicle passes over it it makes a loud noise. Since this is a busy main road with heavy vehicles passing over it regularly, it causes a lot of disturbance 24 hours a day. A lot of people live within earshot and are being kept awake by this.

  • Dreadful. I am still ringing up on a weekly basis and passing messages between various agencies each of whom deny responsibility for the manhole cover. In the meantime we are being kept awake by constant noise.

  • Horrendous. Reported it in December 2016, now ringing on a weekly basis and also involved my local counsellor. Sadly NOTHING has been done.
