New inspection cover on sewer/drain

Reported via desktop in the Manhole & Drain Covers category anonymously at 07:40, Tue 22 August 2023

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4914996.

The new pipe for the development currently under construction is too high for the road surface and bridged with tarmac making this into a virtual ramp when driven over. The cover is in the Braunston bound carriageway at the Braunston end of the current roadworks.

  • To support this report, the developer / utility company have destroyed the original road surface, leaving the highway in urgent need of resurfacing. Cars are now swerving around the manhole.

    Accepting that our highway engineers are busy people, this still needs prioritising early, to ensure that the costs for repairs don’t fall to the local authority.

  • 2nd October 2023 This raised manhole remains a hazard and danger to all road users. Please provide an update.

  • Over three months since the initial report and this stretch of road is now horrendous. Used (carefully) yesterday, the raised area is a disaster waiting to happen and has deteriorated further, the utility installations have destroyed the road surface and the opening (yesterday) of the new egress onto the estate left piles of mud and debris across the road surface.

    It needs an urgent planning / highways inspection and enforcement notices to have these issues resolved before there is a serious accident.
