Buses/New Road Surface causing vibration of house

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 13:29, Friday 7 May 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Last year part of the 'Highlands' road was re-surfaced. Our house is in Glyndebourne Gardens but is also situated right next to Highlands. Since it has been re-surfaced we now feel our house vibrate and rattle when the buses go by all the time. I feel that this is unacceptable and a lot to put up with when there are quite a lot of buses that go by throughout the day. It never seemed to happen before the road was re-surfaced.
