I think what you are saying is a proerty wall is built over a manhole. The lintel could well be substantial to carry the load. The problem sound like access to the manhole. Answer is to build another manhole alongside outside the building then break through to the existing thus enlarging for access to the main drain run and it`s branches off. Hope this helps.
