  • This issue is still not fixed. It has been noisy for many months now and is driving the community crazy with the amount of traffic that crosses over it. Why has this not been fixed yet?

  • The above issue is still not fixed. Please advise when somebody will take action and resolve the problem. How hard can it be to fix a manhole cover!!!!! Bexley Council have advised it's nothing to do with them, but can you not take action against whoever does own the manhole cover. Your residents have had enough!!

  • This is now unbelievable, I’m getting sleepless nights and days due to it not being fixed. I will cone off the drain cover myself and hopefully this will not cause traffic queues. Update would be nice

  • I can also confirm that this problem is still not fixed. This road is in a conservation area and for this noise to carry on as it does is remarkable. This needs to be fixed urgently.

  • Thames Water have confirmed that the manhole cover is nothing to do with them. Bexley Council need to sort this problem urgently. Residents have put up with the disruptive noise from this manhole cover for nearly a year now. Please advise when you are going to fix this problem!!!!!
