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, manholes can become worn, damaged or even go missing.

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

How we deal with reported manhole cover problems

One of our inspectors will visit the location of the manhole, identify its owner and report the issue directly to their 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.
