  • Thank you for contacting Highways England regarding the cover.

    We have been aware of this issue and have serviced BT with a S81 notice from a few weeks ago regarding this. Their contractors went out there Tuesday at 0830am and closed one lane placing the road on traffic light control. They repaired the chamber but unfortunately stated that they couldn’t get the surfacing material until late morning Wednesday.

    This problem is in hand and we will continue to monitor this area once the repairs are finished.

    Kind Regards Highways England

    State changed to: No further action
