Originally this was reported earlier this year. The manhole cover has come loose and as this is a busy A road the HGVs that go over it are causing a loud bang. It could also cause an accident if it does actually come loose not to mention a massive traffic jam with this road being in of the busiest in the country.

This manhole was fixed in February and was fine but in May it was dug up again and left with a temp sign next to it. I have no idea why it was dug back up but it seems to have caused the issues to reappear.

The cover is around 20 feet from New Road and is about halfway between the car wash and New Road on the side going from Sheffield into Manchester.
