Sent to Rutland County Council 5 minutes later

Slightly sunken, but very loud when lorries and cars drive over double manhole cover. This is not an Anglian Water manhole cover. The damaged one is in between two Anglian Water covers and on the south side of A606 in between Holly Cottage and 8 Main Road, Whitwell.

  • Council have finally passed this on to Severn Trent. It took about four weeks to get to this stage. We are now waiting for ST to get in touch and fix the problem. Disappointing, slow, sub-standard. Problem increasing at same rate as their inefficiency.

  • Utterly useless. The manholes were marked and identified about 3 weeks ago and nothing else has happened. If it were Anglian Water this would have been resolved 5 weeks ago. What is happening?
