Manhole cover broken, concrete block trip hazards

A concrete manhole cover was damaged when a van drove over it about four weeks ago. It has been left in a mess and unrepaired ever since.

Someone put some fencing around the area, with some rubble and a cone has just been left covering it.

This is a particular issue for myself because it is on the dropped curb of my driveway meaning I have difficulty getting my car in and our of my property. It also risks damaging my car, as the rubble could damage my tires which could cause me a safety serious risk when driving. I have also come close to scratching the paintwork on the fencing on a few occasions.

I am also concerned because there are large blocks of shattered concrete piled there, which are a serious trip hazard. Indeed I saw someone nearly fall over them a few days ago.

Additionally, given this is right next to a busy nursery school, there are lots of young families walking past every day - they often have to wheel their pushchairs into the sometimes busy road, which is a big risk for them.

Given the time that has passed since the issue arose, I would be most grateful if you could now sort it out.

Many thanks,

Rob Weekes
