Sinking tarmac outside 39 Tollington Rd creating noise vibrations

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 12:58, Wed 22 January 2020

Sent to TfL 3 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS1954633.

A sunken trench keeps developing outside 39 Tollington Rd. This little section of road across the full width of the bus lane is constantly being crushed by the heavy buses every 30 seconds. You can see the road move under the weight. Every tarmac fix so far has disintegrated within two weeks to recreate the sunken trench. (last fix in december has crumbled and vanished). Every 30 seconds a heavy bus thunders over and shakes all our properties with a double thump. I feel the section should be dug up as deep as possible, hardcore put in for stablity, and then retarmac. It is the spongyness under the tarmac which is causing us all so many problems
