Unsafe loose manhole cover which makes a large bang every time a car passes over it.

Reported via mobile in the Road surface category anonymously at 14:44, Mon 4 January 2021

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later

Situated on Latimer road at the bottom of Mill Close. It’s a loose, unsafe, broken manhole cover which makes a very loud bang every time a car passes over it. This disturbs us at night and wakes my children up regularly as it’s so loud. It’s breaking down more each day, it’s a danger to cyclists as well.

  • You have fixed the tarmac around the manhole cover but have not fixed the broken manhole cover. This is in two pieces and makes a very loud bang every time a car drives over it. This is a busy road therefore very noisy, it keeps us awake at night. Please fix it soon!!!
