Report a problem with a manhole cover

A manhole cover is the metal lid of a drain which can be found on pavements throughout Harrow. 

Over time, lids and covers can become worn, damaged or even missing.

As well as becoming trip hazards for pedestrians, manhole lids or covers can end up in the roads, footpaths or gardens.

Report a problem with a manhole cover

How do we deal with reported manhole cover problems?

One of our inspectors will visit the location of the manhole cover issue and identify the owner of the manhole cover and report the issue directly to that company.

We do not carry out direct repairs on manhole covers.

We aim to respond to your report within three working days.

A site visit from one of our inspectors will be conducted within 5-7 working days.
