Collapsing steel cover

Reported via desktop in the Pothole on road/cycleway category by R D Gregory at 13:48, Monday 22 March 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 392828.

Yet again- it is a year since this was reported- the rectangular steel service cover at the corner of Carre Street has collapsed. This gives a violent and damaging jolt to all vehicles entering the road as it is in a critical part of the road. HGV's use this road and the likelihood of complete collapse and vehicle damage is high. Damage to the infra-structure operating the traffic lights is also possible.
