Hazard - drain hole cover completely broken

Reported in the Manhole/drain cover on pavement/verge category anonymously at 10:06, Thu 4 October 2018

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 4 minutes later. Council ref: 338834.

At the bottom of Little Lane, near the drive entrance to new houses, a plastic manhole cover has been damaged and the drain hole is now completely exposed. This is a route to 3 schools and 2 nurseries and poses a real danger to pedestrians. I use the route daily with my 2 year old who could quite easily fall in if we weren’t aware of the hole.

  • This has been damaged since September, a cone was put over it which has been snapped in half and is extremely sharp. If this issue has not been fixed within 5 working days I will log an official complaint. I also have photos to backup my complaint.
