Manhole cover still rattling

Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 19:04, Sun 12 May 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The manhole cover 2 back from the badgers turning had the road surface repaired on Friday 10th May 2019 but it is still rattling and is getting worse. Repairing the road surface around the cover is not working as this has been done several times over the last 4 years. It is causing vibrations to my house when lorries drive across it and the noise pollution is unbearable.

  • The manhole cover was repaired again last week and stopped rattling until today when the rattling has started Again! Unbelievable this is now the 6th time it has been fixed. When will the council realise that repairing the road surface does not fix the problem. Surely now the only option is to move it.

  • The covers have been replaced and/or repairs carried out 6 times. It is in the wrong place and needs to be moved, otherwise it will continue to fail.
