Banging Manhole Cover (Again!!!)

Reported via mobile in the Manhole cover broken/missing category anonymously at 13:24, Sunday 14 January 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5440696.

Yet again, another manhole cover is banging on the Bicester Road and is noisy (see photos which will show the exact location). Please can I ask that this matter is urgently looked into and fixed and that you don't take almost a year to fix this one like the last one that was reported. The entire stretch of this part of the Bicester Road needs resurfacing from Applegreens down to McDonalds. The patchwork and short-term repairs you and the utility companies continue to do are simply not sufficient to deal with the volume of traffic, speed vehicles drive, and the high number of HGVs that use this road. You recently wrote an article in a council booklet that was posted through my door about how brilliant you are at repairing roads and how you have a zero tolerance to utility companies who fail to repair issues they were responsible for once it would be nice to see this actually happening.
