Time to get out the metal detectors and find those manhole covers.Originally Posted by skimonkey
The manhole covers my city uses fit in a sliding sleeve that can be raised to accommodate the increased thickness of a layer of new paving.
I hope the contractor is found responsible for this mess.
They said it'll take them more than a week to find, fix and clear the manholes. Also in time when all of our dam is in red alert. The water level is inches away from the critical level. One dam started releasing yesterday. Hope the people near the dams will know what to do just in case it starts to flood.Originally Posted by skimonkey

Here, the covers and frames to all services ironwork are released, and are raised up on rings of concrete or metal to realign with the new road surface.
Alternatively, and more usually, the old road is removed by planing machines in readiness for a new roadway to be constructed. This is very much the process being undertaken in Scifan's street.
