Grid/manhole on the crossing on the road

Sent to Oxford City Council and Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This manhole/drainage cover has been damaged for several months. Every time the lights go green about 15 cars drive over it causing a massive banging throughout the day and night. Please can you look at it it’s directly across from my window and wakes me up throughout the night, other residents have complained about it too.

I appreciate it is a busy road but the constant metal on metal banging is too much now.

Thankyou very much

  • Thank you for your enquiry. I am sorry it has taken a while for a response. I looked at this issue last week and it must be annoying annoying for the residents. I raised this as what we call a section 81 for Thames Water to attend as I think it is their apparatus. The category was raised as a 28 day severity of defect which means they should attend within this timescale from when it was reported.
    Kind regards
