Sent to Bristol City Council 5 minutes later

Just before turning left onto Marksbury Road from Bedminster Road.The manhole covers are making a terrible clattering noise when vehicles drive over them. Much worse during busy periods. Its getting worse and is only a matter of time before it is seriously damaged.This was reported to you before Christmas. From the correspondence available it would appear to be either an issue you, OpenReach or Vodaphone should have fixed.

  • I was in this area on Sun 2nd Feb and yesterday Sat 22nd Feb, door-knocking as a candidate for the May 2020 elections. The noise from the loose manhole cover persists. It is irritating and frequent. It makes a loud noise every time a vehicle passes over it - if is a significant noise nuisance to nearby houses and has been reported by many people. Would it be possible to have an update on this

  • The problem remains, it's a constant "clank clank" as vehicles drive over it. A frequent & noisy reminder that nothing has been done to sort it out the manhole cover out.

  • Words fail me. The problem is still there. Why with a reduced traffic flow has it not been repaired?
