The previous road works across Common road have sunk. They are located between No's 41 & 43 as per photo. The road has sunk due to continual use of very heavy lorries going to and from the house building works at the top of North Leigh village. This road damage is causing my house to shake - even my bed shakes !! This is happening every 30 minutes every day as the 233 bus passes down the road at speed. So there is no relief from the problem seven days a week. The damage has been there around two years but is now getting worse.

Council ref: ENQ21892242

    Update only to report that things are getting worse with house vibration / bangs & crashes as vehicles move up and down Common Road at speed. I have attached another problem of sinking repairs just up from the previous one, outside number 37 / 39 Common road. As can be seen in the last photo the road surface is very badly worn and breaking up in places due to heavy lorries using this road for the house building site at the top of the village. The road surface could do with resurfacing as is happening all around West Oxfordshire please.
