Manhole cover in bus lane nr old homebase exit

Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 17:48, Tue 17 December 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The manhole cover in the bus lane a few yards down from the old exit from home base is so loose now that it rises up out of its position every time traffic crosses it and sounds so loud it is like a gun going off every few seconds. It has become much worse in the last couple of weeks and is really dreadful now. It is a danger to passing cars, pedestrians and a huge nuisance for the residents nearby. Would be grateful if it could have a temporary cover to make it safe and quieter until permanent repairs can be effected. Thank you very much. photos to follow.
