Noisy Manhole on the intersection of Southend Lane and The Avenue

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Raising another complain here on the same issue that’s been directed to Thames Water. Noisy manhole on the intersection of the Southend Lane and the Avenue/Copers Cope.

I believe the issue should be handled by the Bromley Council, as it’s not the manhole cover causing the noise. The road has sunk right next to the manhole. Works were done on the road by Bromley council over summer. Doesn’t look like works done perfectly as the road is now faulty. This is evident in the picture attached. Contractor from Thames Water was out on site on Monday afternoon. Manhole cover is not broken. Noise is due to Cars hitting manhole at an angle due to Bromley Council road defect. This is frustrating and a danger to our health as none of us can sleep at night due to noise. Contractor from Thames Water was on site on Monday and confirmed the same. Moreover Thames Water only accepts faults where there is a W or Thames Water on the manhole. That is not the case here. This is a roadwork fault. Please help. Thanks,
