Surrounding tarmac to large drain cover in middle of northbound carriageway breaking up causing drain cover to become loose and make deafening 'clack - clack' noise when struck by vehicle. This noise is keeping residents awake at night. I live in a street adjacent to the A23 and my family are awoken at night by this noise. It is a 24/7 problem. I understand this has been reported by other residents, some in excess of 3 weeks ago! The problem requires urgent attention.
