Loose drain cover on Station Road

Reported via desktop in the Road Surface category anonymously at 10:06, Wednesday 3 April 2024

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 404977.

There is a loose drain cover that is creating an exceptional amount of noise on Station Road every time a car drives over it which is every few seconds. I live on Saffron Court and I can hear it from there. Everyday I walk along station road & the noise is getting louder, it sounds like a gun shot. Surely there is an environmental noise law that this is breaching. I can also hear it on back street. This level of noise is unacceptable and is purely down to the drain cover not fitting properly. I feel sorry for the residents as there is no way of escaping this dreadful noise and this must be so detrimental to their well being, I know it's affecting me from walking past & where I live. This has been going on for months now and is just getting worse.

  • Customer email:

    You recently sent me an email acknowledging a complaint about a noise nuisance manhole cover in Station Road, Biggleswade. Ref: 404977. The persistent bang bang every few seconds during the day when the road is at its busiest is becoming intolerable and carries on all day and night.
    I would be interested to know when something will be done about it,
