Series of poorly fixed road defects in Bus Lane on Parkhurst Road, right after the pedestrian crossing, by Williamson Street. This has been reported, before, one time the person taking my notes failed to provide a reference number, and it has been reported again, but no action has been taken. The hole is there now for weeks if not months. As far as I'm aware TFL has the obligation to regularly monitor red routes, and fix road defects. The problem is because the uneven surface due to the poor quality repairs, and the reopened patch, there is a vibration in the building next to it, when heavy vehicles like buses drive through it, especially at night when they tend to drive at higher speeds. The radiators, walls and floors are vibrating. The building in question is 37b 37a and the flats in 39 Parkhurst Road. The resident in 37a decorated their flat last year and cracks on the wall already appearing. I'd like the person who reads this, to handle this as an urgent matter. I've been in contact with the council, who happened to be the freeholder of the building. They advised to get in touch with a solicitor company immediately, and also inform the insurance company Zurich Insurance as well, about the negligence of the road and the effects on the building out of it. They advised to get in touch with you in writing. Thank you
