The road surface is uneven around the drain covers on Town Lane as you travel towards Wooburn Green, just before the turning to Wooburn Manor Park.

When a large vehicle such as a lorry goes over this bit of road they make an extremely loud noise and cause our house to shake and vibrate. I have measured the noise as being over 70 decibels on my Apple Watch. The issue has been getting worse over the last 6 months as the road surface continues to deteriorate.

  • The problem is getting worse. I can send a video of the noise lorries and hgv's make when they travel over the area if this would be helpful.

    Could you update me on what is happening with regards to the report. It changed to closed, then back to open and in progress so I'm confused as to what is now going on. Many thanks.
