All of the manhole covers on this street are very slippy when it’s raining

Reported via desktop in the Utlility covers category anonymously at 14:41, Sun 19 March 2023

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4331205.

Whilst walking down the hill in trainers, I slipped on one of the wet manhole covers. My trainers had what I would consider to have sufficient slip resistance for wet weather. At the time I put this down to just being unlucky. Whilst walking back up the hill later I witnessed two other people slip and fall on two separate manhole covers. I sustained an injury to my right knee but would be concerned if an older person was to fall causing them more serious injury. I look forward to hearing from you.
