When heavy goods vehicles drive over these sunken drains my whole house shakes. Cracks in my cottage appear to be worsening due to this. It may cause structural damage.

  • I witnessed the most ludicrous attempt at repairing this issue, two repair vans pulled up emptied a bag of what looked like tarmac out into the sunken arrears then patted them down with the back of a shovel before driving off - within hours the road traffic had carried the tarmac or to pasture's new in the tread of their tyres!
