Speed hump is causing severe vibration and noise outside my home.

Reported in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 10:26, Thu 13 August 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2243230.

Due to increased traffic and in particular heavy goods vehicles going over speed hump right outside my home we are seeing increased house vibration and noise throughout the day and night.

We would like to request the speed hump to be removed and potential replaced by a zebra crossing to allow easier access to the shops and pub for local residents when crossing the road.

We have discussed this with other residents on Moorhouse Way (off Lake avenue) and they also agree the speed hump has become a problem and would be better served being replaced with zebra crossing due to increase traffic.
