This manhole cover has been clanging for 3 years or more. A mian road with constant traffic. I live 100 metres away and it wakes us up at and disturbs everytime a vehicl goes over it. It's either BT or Virgin bbut nothing is being done. What does it take to get a simple job done ?

  • An e mail this morning tells me the job is fixed. I can assure you it is not. Nobody has been near it and we are still being disturbed day and night

  • The manhole still clangs everytime a vehicle goes over it and on a main road that is quite a lot. Our sleep is being disturbed on a regular basis. If this was outside Marvin Rees's home it would be fixed immediately but it seems nobody cares about this.

  • Nobody gives a monkeys about this problem. If a councillor lived here it would be fixed but we’re just normal working class people that pay their wages, so don’t count. Three years and counting. When this eventually, if ever, gets fixed, we’ll be awake all night because it’s so quiet !

  • The cover is still clanging. The saga goes on and on, year after year. I’m surprised it hasn’t collapsed. Why the Council are incapable of fixing it is beyond me !!

  • It keeps getting reported as fixed and it isn’t. If someone from the Council actually came and looked and listened to the noise instead of just sending down EWM to do it, it might just get fixed. I live in hope.
