Repaired inspection cover still causing problems.

This was reported back in November and it appeared that a proper repair was carried out with a new cover and reinstatement of surrounding surface, however the location is still either barricaded off forcing traffic into the centre of the road or (it varies) a traffic cone is placed in the road to cause traffic to swerve around the area.

I suspect the reason is the new cover is very noisy when traffic passes over it and that the above are local attempts to mitigate this.

Whatever the reasons, this needs resolving.

  • United Utilities have now replaced the loose manhole and repaired around the cover. We will keep an eye on this manhole as it has failed a couple of times now.

    State changed to: Fixed
