Badly fitted manhole cover near Pet Food Factory Gainsborough

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 09:37, Thursday 29 April 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 395557.

Gainsborough -Ropery Road adjacent Ackland Street. This particular area kept flooding, roadworks put in a new manhole cover a couple of weeks ago, which is not fitted correctly. This results in an extremely loud double bang every time a vehicle drives over this. This is causing a major noise problem for residents on this section of Ropery Road. I am unable to sleep due to the continues traffic flow and all I can hear when sat in my garden is this constant noise. Please could this be re fitted. Thank you
