Earlier this year, the disintegrating gutter/drain beside the Harefields bus stop was (temporarily?) repaired using a large steel plate (see photo). Since then, serious shock waves (and some noise) have been felt in neighbouring properties as buses pass over the steel plate. Observation shows that the steel plate is flexing and causing a massive double-shock as each of the bus two axles run over it.

Council ref: ENQ20866669

  • This issue has not ben addressed satisfactorily yet. As the traffic continues to increase, with more and more activity outside of the lockdown, there is increasing disturbance along this road especially in the mornings when the whole house shakes from the traffic passing through this spot. Several times I have been woken up from my sleep due to the vibration of the whole floor. Its very worrying when you are shaken awake and it continues to be unacceptable. I would be grateful if somebody could see to this urgently, as it has been a major problem for some time now. Thank you,
