I've submitted a roads defect to TFL via their web site.


Thanks for that.

And possibly ask why their quality control/education/training of the gulley-emptiers is so remiss...

Saw another upside-down grating somewhere else, too... Wish I had been as diligent as you.

Good to raise the bar.

Thanks Charles, I did realise today on further observation that the grate is merely upside down. But no, I didn't take it on myself to try to correct that. No good deed goes unpunished, after all!

Still upside down this morning (2 Feb 2012). No reply from TFL. Pathetic. You would think London's solicitors would be more interested in protecting their client from liability.

Oh my god. Only in London would it be a reasonable solution to this problem to pack some asphalt into the upside down drain cover!

I only got a glimps of it the other day, but I believe this has now been wholly replaced! Hey, maybe the system does work.
