Extended gas works, apparently carried out very professionally and over a long period, have resulted in a very substantial increase to ground borne vibration in the surrounding buildings, including our house. Some vibrations have always existed, but as soon as the traffic restrictions were removed, we have seen a huge spike in the tremors felt in our building. We would like this to be investigated and corrected. Resurfacing of the A205 here a few years ago left a smooth, quiet and vibration free surface, and it is apparent that the cause of the recent change is the gas mains works that were recently completed.

State changed to: not TfL’s responsibility

I'm sorry to insist, but this is incorrect.
Waldram Park Road is a Red Route and the official South Circular (A205) and is therefore entirely the responsibility of TfL. I did write to Lewisham to confirm this, and they agree. TfL are responsible for the Red Routes and this includes surfacing, traffic, parking and the management of any utilities works.
Could you please re-open this and investigate this more carefully, please?
