A round cover won't fall into a round hole.

Because they have to cover a round opening

Because there is fiber cable that tunnel between buildings and having manhole allows people to pull new cable but these manhole also need security which is why if you pull the cover off an alarm will go off tell someone that's it has been open. Also there is normal a second lock as well before you can get into most manholes.
