Dip in road surface causing structural damage
Reported via desktop in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 13:37, Thu 21 October 2021
Sent to TfL 3 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS3076426.
The road surface outside my house is uneven, with emerging potholes and drain covers. Because my house is only 1 metre from a very busy double red route, this means buses and other HGVs are crashing into the dips as they pass my house, causing significant shaking. I'm increasingly concerned about structural damage impacts to my house. Can TfL investigate these impacts and/or consider the road surface or road layout in this strip of road, where the houses are so close to the traffic?
Thank you for taking the time to report this to. We appreciate this an wanted to let you know that we’ve re-categorised this and it will now be directed to the appropriate team.
