Faulty manhole cover not seated correctly.Reported this and feedback was they couldnt find the problem.

Reported via mobile in the Surface cover category anonymously at 10:59, Fri 17 September 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 361623.

Reported this and feedback was they couldnt find the problem. The drain cover is located in Dene way out side number 3 and 12 in the middle of the road. The cover does not look to be broken visually but every time a car drives over it there is a loud bang, which disturbs sleep and indicates an issue with the way the cover is seated. Ask operatives to drive over the cover and they will experience this for themself.

  • Customer called to advise that AW have updated them today and advised that it is not their manhole cover. They advised that they are responsible for foul water drains and this is not. Please can you look into this further as customer has advised the noisy manhole is disturbing sleep for residents in the street. Customer also advised that the manhole has been sprayed over the last few days with a blue cross - photo to follow and to her knowledge there have been no works carried out in the area any time recently. Please advise.
