Raised Manhole damaged

Reported via desktop in the Manhole cover broken/missing category by full name at 23:07, Monday 15 April 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5857832.

I've notice this manhole is slowly getting smaller over the last few years as vehicles keep hitting it. I guess lorry wheel nuts are stronger than the bricks you used. Why it was rebuilt a few ago, bigger and closer to the road is a mystery. But it was. Well it's definitely getting smaller now. It might be worth taking a look before it gone altogether. Sorry I did not get an uptodate photo of it.

Updates

  • Almost all manhole covers have some form of identification on them, and it is likely that the manhole cover is owned by a utility company, who are legally responsible for maintaining it.

    This report has been passed to the Highway Officer, who will carry out an inspection within the next 10 working days and if it is found to be the responsibility of Buckinghamshire Highways we will take the appropriate action. If, however, it is found to be the responsibility of the utility company we will report the issue to them, but please note we have no control regarding how long it will take to be fixed by the utility company.
