Noisy Manhole cover-still not fixed

Reported in the Utlility Covers category by lucy conroy at 09:26, Friday 14 February 2020

This utility cover in the middle of the road near my house is rocking and is incredibly noisy, It disturbs me, and other residents day and night. It is on the road outside Marksbury Libary on Bedminster Road. I have been in touch with vodafone about it, I was told on the phone that it now belongs to Openreach, I contacted openreach who were very helpful, they sent an engineer straight out and he confirmed its nothing to do with openreach (it says Vodafone on the cover) I'm assuming this is an old, un-used cover which is why nobody wants to take responsibility for it? I have reported this to the council many times and have put a verbal complaint in to vodafone, I have also just filled out an online complaint to vodafone, I would encourage others to do this, I'm also just about to start looking into noise pollution laws.
