  • It's now mid-June, and the covers are still missing. Despite signage and cones to warn of the danger, the cones are often "hiding" within the gaping drain hole, and thus difficult to see. They cause vehicles to swerve out, creating potential conflict with oncoming traffic on an already narrow road.

    Does B&NES council have an estimate for when the covers will actually be replaced?

  • I find it unbelievable that almost 2 months after reporting this nothing has been done except a couple of signs and a few cones! I understand 80 covers/gratings have been stolen in the wider area but, come on B&NES pull your finger out and get this sorted before someone is injured or worse.
