Back to all reports

There are 3 BT manhole covers in a row on the left hand side of the road heading towards Edmund road. All are raised above the level of the road. The last one before exiting Coton road is so raised and with a paving slab to the left of it raised that I fell over it so heavily that I ripped my clothing, have two swollen knees, one bloodied knee and a twisted left wrist. The incident occurred today -28.09.20. At approximately 12.08 midday and was witnessed by a member of the public and a traffic warden.

The BT man hole is raised above the surface of the pathway. An attempt has been made with concrete to create a slope on it but this presents a falls risk and a paving slab to the left of it is exposed at the corner so it is easy to catch your foot and fall as I did.
