Manhole - moving with exposed edges

Reported via desktop in the Utlility Covers category anonymously at 13:32, Wed 2 March 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Loudly rocking manhole that has developed in the last month, but is getting worse. Not just the cover: the entire manhole structure seems to be loose - including the cast iron frame holding the manhole cover in place. The frame seems to have been undermined by a pothole that has developed at one corner. The exposed metal frame looks very dangerous - just the type of thing that could rip a tyre to shreds. Location: immediately opposite the streetlamp on Hotwell Road, by the pedestrian access to Freeland Place. Southbound carriageway.
