Manhole cover still rattling

Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 10:36, Wednesday 27 February 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

I recently reported a loose manhole cover which has started to rattle, ticket number 40096198. There were issues with 2 manhole covers one of which has been fixed. However the one that directly affects my house is still problematic. I called the council as I received an email informing me that the work was complete and reported that there was still a problem. Another work ticket was raised, number 46066432 and I have heard nothing since. As the problem still exists can it please be looked at again. The manhole cover, 2nd one back from the badgers turning is rattling loudly as the traffic drives over it. It really should be moved altogether as this keeps happening.

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • When will this be fixed? How long is a reasonable time to wait from when a problem was first reported to it actually being fixed? The rattling/clanking of the manhole cover continues to worsen and perhaps I should place a cone on top of it in the meantime.

  • Please be advised, this is not fixed. The manhole cover still ratlles as vehicles hit it when the drive onto it and the vibrations have actually worsened to our house.
