  • This problem is now in a very dangerous state with potential for a fatal traffic accident. The tarmac around the manhole is slowly degrading every time a vehicle drives over the manhole cover resulting in the manhole cover becoming extremely loose and in danger of flipping over or snapping and falling into the manhole both of which will cause a very serious and potentially fatal accident.
