Whole house shakes when buses or lorries go by

Reported in the Road or pavement defect category anonymously at 12:58, Wed 5 December 2012

Sent to Hackney 2 minutes later

The road has huge cracks running across it which appeared after the new water pipes were installed. Whole house shakes like a small earthquake when buses or lorries go past - water in upstairs bath ripples and we are regularly woken up by it. Contacted Council to complain in summer and spoke to contractors but both said the other was responsible. Was told no work could be done because of Olympics but I would be contacted after. Have heard nothing since.

  • Ho hum. Continuing radio silence from Hackney Council. Not quite sure I see the point of this. Nice of you to remind me every month that nothing has happened but why is the Council not using this website to provide them with some insight???

  • No action.With all due respect to the founders of this website, it is a complete waste of time as far as Hackney Council is concerned. They clearly pay no attention to it other then automatically acknowledging any comments when they are posted.
