Unsecured manhole creating unbearable noise

Reported in the Gully or manhole defect category anonymously at 22:50, Tue 20 June 2017

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 5 minutes later

There is a manhole cover on Avenue Road which is not fully secured down which creates an unbearable noise when vehicles drive over it. The road has a high volume of heavy vehicles driving on it in the evenings and it makes it impossible to get a good nights sleep even with the windows closed. Now the weather is hot the windows need to be open and every 15 seconds I am subjected to 2 or 3 loud bangs from the manhole cover.

  • Very happy with how quickly this issue was resolved. I reported it late at night and by the time I got home from work the next day a temporary solution had been put in place. Within a further 3 days a permanent fix was carried out.
