Default Manhole Covers.....?

Wonder if anyone can help....??? I've got a plastic manhole cover on my drive and not sure if I should change to a stronger metal one. The current cover doesn't seem to have a manufacturer's name on it so if anyone can help with this it would be very, very much appreciated.
(ignore the dirty drive - living on a building site at the minute!!)




Thanks...

Stay with Plastic. The Pikey's will leave it alone.

I believe the "correct" term is personhole cover.

I have never seen plastic cover, I would personally change to a metal one.

Agree. Change to medium duty metal.

Yeah it'll be fine if you can be sure that you will never have a heavy builders truck reversing up your drive or you decide to have a clear out and hire a skip.

I had my block paving drive severely damaged by such things

Thanks guys, appreciate all the advice...
Think I'm okay to leave the 'Inspection Cover' as it is without any probs.(just thought 'manhole cover' sounded a bit better than 'plastic thing on the drive')!!!
