Bus noise unbearable on uneven cobalt street

Reported via mobile in the Pavement Defect (uneven surface / cracked paving slab) category anonymously at 23:14, Monday 3 October 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3866036.


The bus D3 goes under my window through the uneven pavement of cobalt street which causes an actual esrthquake in my flat but also creates unbearable noise.

The buses are cruising around high speed especially late at night where there is less traffic. The buses are anyways incredibly old and noisy and that coupled with the cobalt street actually makes this an unbearable issue.

While the bus has people on it during the day noone is really using it after 9pm, why does it have to run until so late at night? Additionally are there plans to replace this bus with electric buses so the sound of acceleration and the engine would be that bad?

Many thanks, Niki
