  • I’m noticing a distinct increase in HGV shockwaves transferring through the structure of my property which I’m concerned may be causing structural damage. I’ve lived in the property for 10 years and believe it’s now worse than ever. Can you make an assessment please along the lines of BS EN 1794‑1 to determine if the current ground-shock is within acceptable standards.

  • Apologies, I believed in my initial report I had provided my postcode as WR11 7QP - This is 10 miles from the location shown in the defective surface information above. The previously reported issue is a subsided drain on the northbound A46 immediately opposite my property (Honeysuckle Cottage) & adjacent to the BP Vale Services. A Highways Inspector was parked on the footpath there last week but was so close to the kerbside HGV's were missing the drain to maintain the inspectors safety. If you need further information please call me on 07971 646 246 - Regards, Dave Telling
