Loose and protruding manhole cover in outbound carriageway (opposite no.118)

Reported via desktop in the Carriageway Defect category anonymously at 09:54, Thu 17 December 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Outbound carriageway opposite number 118 Portway. Manhole cover loose and was sticking up out of carriageway until a bus hit it and it fell back in. It moves every time a vehicle hits it (with a loud bang) and it jumps out. If it comes out there will be a hole in the road. I tried to record it as an emergency on the phone but the lines were closed!

  • Whilst the man hole cover has been fixed, the roadworks signs have fallen in the wind and traffic is almost colliding with the cones. Lots of horn beeping going on!
