This damaged, potholed section of road has become increasingly worse over the past winter period causing incessant thudding and thumping noise pollution as traffic hits it, especially hgv’s etc which also causes a noticeable vibration in our household, particularly noticeable at night resulting in disrupted sleep for our family.

  • These pot holes have deteriorated further causing unbearable noise and vibrations within our household. I believe these pot holes need to be remedied ASAP as all hgv traffic causes very loud thudding that is disrupting our children’s sleep.

  • I would also like to report this issue. I too live near this..... in a house with no double glazing. The current reduction in the traffic is now meaning cars and lorries pass through the village at an unbelievable speed, meaning the thudding seems to have become even worse. I can’t remember the last time I had a good nights sleep
