Report a problem with an manhole cover

What happens next

We will inspect the problem sometime between 2 hours and 10 days after you report it. This depends on how serious it is.

We then decide whether to:

  • fix the problem
  • refer it to someone else (for example, a utility company )
  • add it to our long-term programme of work

If we feel that no further action is needed at this time we will close the report.
