  • Hello. This is a separate report for the same loose ironworks. A52 Grantham Rd, jct Saxondale Drive. It is still bouncing, very loudly, disturbing my children’s sleep and has been so for a fortnight. Traffic hammers across this cover in excess of 40mph, it won’t last long. A major trunk route will be severely affected.
