Cracked Roads causing immense disruption

Reported via mobile in the Potholes category anonymously at 21:29, Wednesday 30 June 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 358605.

The main road has heavy footfall of concrete trucks and all industrial commercial vehicles passing all through the night and all day. The road surfaces over the entire year is becoming unbearable to live in my home constantly vibrating at all hours, my children sleep on the top floor the point of the house that trembles because of the road conditions. The speeds at which the heavy goods vehicles are travelling over these cracks causes the entire vehicle to crash down with tons of weight every ripple(approx every two metres hearing trucks coming from yards away before hearing the engine). I have been a resident here in Central beds for over 1 year, this is becoming so disruptive to mine and my young families sleep. Running care agencies and 2 children under two the quiet peace move has been ruined by the conditions of Sunderland Road and the amount its abused. All neighbours have discussed major concerns, and fear has got to a all point high with cracks showing in neighbouring property!
