Sunken valve cover

Reported via desktop in the Pothole on road/cycleway category anonymously at 10:01, Wednesday 22 February 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 448798.

There is a sunken valve cover in the roadway as you turn from Hawthorn Bank into St Andrews Road which is in the line of traffic with potential to damage tyres/wheels.

  • Open Reach (BT) is responsible for this issue. We have reported this to them on your behalf and asked them to investigate. Please contact them directly at help-and-support/ damage-health-and-safety if you require any further information. Thank you for reporting this matter.

  • As the defect is marked up with blue paint, and is the size of a valve cover, I expect that this should have been passed to Anglian Water to remediate rather than Openreach.
