Slippery manhole covers

Reported in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 17:30, Sunday 1 March 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council 4 minutes later

2 large rectangluar manhole covers on pavement on opposite side of street from 86/88 St Michaels Hill - these are EXTREMELY slippery when wet & difficult to avoid walking on. (Similar ones in Clyde Park & on Whiteladies Rd near Cotham Hill junction) have had non-slip surface applied. Previously reported last year but no action taken - report was simply closed without expanation. Can easily slip & break a bone on these surfaces - I've slipped twice now despite wearing good soled walking boots.
