Sunken storm drain

Reported by Christopher Jones at 16:45, Tue 7 December 2021

Hi TFL There is a sunken storm drain within the northbound bus lane on the Holloway Road, outside Vagabond Coffee Shop (105 Holloway Road). As the load-bearing wheels of buses / large vehicles travel over the sunken storm drain, a shockwave is transmitted across the road and into the Highbury Gardens development in which I live. I presume a similar (if not more significant) shockwave is transmitted into the properties on the western side of Holloway Road. The shockwave is very noticeable in my property (Apartment 22, 52 Holloway Road) and is akin to a minor earth tremor. I have concerns that if the storm drain is not lifted so as to achieve a level road surface in the bus lane, repeated shockwaves will undermine the building fabric in local structures, including my own. I urge you to inspect the sunken drain and am happy for you to take vibration measurements in my flat to validate this report. Many thanks
