Loose and noisy manhole cover on Oakley, going uphill and opposite No 5 on

Reported in the Potholes & road surface category anonymously at 18:01, Wed 5 June 2019

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 4 minutes later. Council ref: 1650170.

It makes a real racket every time a car goes over it which is disturbing our sleep and driving us mad! Please do something about it. I first reported it about a month ago.

  • This report has still not been actioned. The noise is getting worse and it is increasingly frustrating. Pleas advise on when the repair works will take place. This is very poor service indeed.

  • This drain cover is still loose and noisy despite your assurance that it was scheduled for repair. I first reported this in June 2019. This is an unacceptable length of time to wait for action to be taken. please let me know when you intend to resolve this.

  • Are you ever going to repair this drain cover? It’s becoming looser and the noise, as every vehicle goes over it, is getting worse and worse. Is there a time schedule for the work to be actioned? This is a very long time to wait (since June) and I will be taking it up with our local councillor if I get no response from you.
