manhole cover outside ## Dewstow Street, Newport, NP19 0FT on pavement loudly bangs every time someone walks on it. This is a very busy street and it is annoying as this is causing sleepless nights with constantly banging, could this please be sorted a.s.a.p. Thank you
Can always jam half a wooden clothes peg / cardboard etc down the sides of it & break off any excess sticking up so it's not a trip hazard, that should shut it up until they get around to sorting it, neighbour did that to cover outside doing the same thing.
We have the same issue in Alcester Road South B14. Its been reported many times, including by our local council highways team, nothing seems to be done. We have had months of it clanging now and its becoming infuriating listening to it when trying to sleep. Every time I contact Virgin they simply ask us to fill out the same online form, but nothing seems to happen beyond this. There doesn't seem to be a single human being at Virgin that you can actually speak to about this issue, customer services transfers you to the same recorded message, who never call you back. Hardly the caring company they portray themselves as. I'm not sure what the next step is, anyone got any ideas?
Karen had this feedback from the Cabinet and Plant team via email:
We have booked this out on a 2 hour make safe to stop the noise pollution as a temporary measure on reference VM/CIP/278779 & have asked our contractors to schedule works in asap – they will mail us with a date – have also asked we replace HD covers on this chamber.
The teams will keep us posted on this and if you could please keep in touch if there is anything else we can look at for you that would be great
