Added traffic and electric buses are making our house shake and the road break up

The speed bumps on the road have always caused problems for our house with a very mild shake on occasion if a bus was driving too fast. Since the introduction of new electric buses, which weigh twice that of the old buses and with the addition of all of the extra traffic created by road closures the road is breaking up and the shaking in our house has become significantly worse. It used to be once an hour, now it's ever couple of minutes. Cracks are forming internally and window lintels at the front of the building are showing cracks too. My uneducated guess is that the increased traffic and weight is causing structural damage to both the road and our building. I love the new buses but question whether or not the road is fit for purpose. €
