  • When busses drive quickly along the road, it causes such alarge shaking of our house (number 62) which is directly asjescent to the sunken trench. The glasses on a shelf in our kitchen - to the back of our house - shake every time this happens. I am concerned about the long term damage that may be caused to our house as a result of this trench.
