I have a drain outside my house which has sunk which means every time a heavy vehicle eg (Buses, Tesco, Sainsbury or any other delivery lorry goes over it the whole house shakes. The drain is right on the corner of Oxford Road and Littlehay Road.
Council ref: ENQ19836156

At the moment Oxford Road is closed to most traffic, I have updated these pictures to show that the sunken drain needs to be raised at least three inches and I hope you will be using the road closure to do the job as soon as possible. If your records go back far enough say thirty two years ago twice in the past the repair was done correctly by raising the drain which if done right will last about fifteen years.

The problem with the sunken drain has NOT been fixed, I have since my first complaint noticed that the vibration from heavy traffic is badly affecting all the garden walls between 38 & 42 Oxford Road and they are badly in need of repair which cannot be fixed safetly until the drain has been raised up. The photos below are the repair that was done around 2017 which was totally a waste of time as it did not stop the vibration at all. I complained after this repair was done and I got an email back saying the drain had to be low to let the rainwater away. The drain should have been lifted level with the road for the solution to be solved in the first repair.
