Broken manhole cover noise causing huge disturbance and mental health issues

One of your manhole covers located on the road outside the Brown Derby pub, 336 Kennington Park Rd, Oval, London SE11 4PP has been causing HUGE issues for at least the past 3 months.

Every time a bus passes( every 90 seconds or so, including late at night) it makes a loud banging noise which can be heard indoors in neighbouring houses. It is waking children up and particularly during lockdown when we are all home it is extremly intrusive and upsetting.

Despite numerous local residents and businesses reporting this to you nothing has been done - see the comments at TfL Streetspace:

https://streetcare.tfl.gov.uk/report/2425038
https://streetcare.tfl.gov.uk/report/2316741
https://streetcare.tfl.gov.uk/report/2370539

We have been informed this manhole is the responsibility of Virgin Media and that a notice (Section 81) has been sent to you to arrange for a permanent repair.

Please can you advise when this will take place. Thank you

Re: Broken manhole cover noise causing huge disturbance and mental health issues

Hello jamie_th

 

Thank you for taking the time to raise the open manhole cover via the forums and welcome to the community.

 

I have raised this with the team responsible for management and maintenance of the our street side equipment (cabinet, manhole covers etc) to be attended and secured as quickly as possible.

 

Apologies for any inconvenience caused and we'll hopefully have this fixed soon.

 

Rob
