  • The 'repair' recently carried out to this Thames Water inspection grate and surrounding asphalt has failed and is now in a dangerous state yet again and needs urgent attention. The asphalt has broken away and the grate, which was never properly reinstalled to road level and alignment is protruding and likely to damage vehicles. Also when the hole, which is about 125 mm deep fills with water it is impossible to see and very dangerous to cycles and motor cycles. The original repair was shoddy and a very poor standard and not surprised it's failed. Who will pay for this when the job wasn't done properly in the first place. The photo was taken today 17 December.
