  • Dear Bristol Council,

    There is a manhole loose outside my property in the center of the road. Every car drives over it and it is very loud and disturbing.

    Many Thanks!

  • The man hole cover is becoming even more noisy which causes concern especially when large vehicles travel over it. Feel it is becoming dangerous.

  • Has anyone actually been out to investigate? This is not acceptable, the noise is getting worst and is very disturbing and is affecting sleep. Everytime a car/lorry etc drives over it moves and makes a clicking noise. The manhole cover never used to move, this has gradually got worst over the last few months. We are very disappointed that you feel no action needs to be taken and would like details of the findings of your investigation please.

  • The manhole cover has become increasingly worse over the last week and has been an ongoing problem for over three months now. Reports from many people living on Muller Road, with the concern of road users and the increasing load disturbance to the residence, I hope to stress my concern on behalf of Muller Road for Bristol Council to fix this problem as soon as possible.

  • Unfortunately you have not addressed the request or provided details of your investigation. When would you consider it a problem? Please do not keep advising that there is no problem, please explain why you feel that way? And provide further details.

    The fact that you feel there is no issues has resulted in a couple of neighbours trying to sort the issue themselves, surely that is unacceptable to you??? Obviously the attempt was unsuccessful. Please advise of a different department we should be reporting this? Maybe your "Noise complaints" department.

  • Ok, so this is getting ridiculous now. I've tried to be civilised in my comments and approach to this situation, but this manhole needs re-sitting. This is disturbing my sleep and I'm sure for many others living nearby too, let only the dangers of the road users. Im not sure what other means of approach to take from here but this issue needs to be raised beyond this feed. The only response given from the Bristol City Council is an automated message, which is clearly not being viewed by the people responsible.

  • Called council to report that this is not fixed as cover is still loose and rocking every time traffic passes over it creating noise. This is very annoying especially at night. Call ref is 16710. It had been investigated but the photo on the report was of the manhole cover that had been repaired further up Muller Road - the one that now has tarmac over it. I confirmed location of this manhole cover is outside 80 Muller Road, square cover in the centre of the road. This call will be reopened and the council will identify which utility company is responsible. It then gets referred to the company who have 30 days to repair. If not repaired the council will tarmac over it.
