  • Manhole. Cover. Is immovable,! BUT... the men were there to clear the DRAINS as there is flooding at times on the road especially at the bottom on Bedford Rd / Cambridge Rd, people including myself have already complained about this problem many times, so perhaps they were here to finally clear the DRAINS When will they be coming back?

    State changed to: Open
