Water flooding out from manhole cover in main carriageway

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

During and after periods of heavy rain, water pours out from around the manhole cover situated in the main carriageway outside No.82. This water then lays at a considerable depth and distance in the gutter each side of the blocked drain. As vehicles pass over it there is a loud “clunking” sound, indicating that the pressure of the water from below is lifting the cover therefore putting vehicles at risk of dislodging the cover.
