Potholes along road causing busses to vibrate surrounding houses.

Several potholes have been developing for a number of months along Ivydale Road, specifically along the section between the junctions with Rosenthorpe Road and Homeleigh Road, and are now causing real issues for the surrounding houses, which are suffering from vibration and subsequent potential structural damage from the multiple passing heavy busses. Frequent 343 and 484 busses in both directions with no speed restrictions are increasing the size and depth of the sink-holes, causing issues with shaking the surrounding properties. I think the speed humps were removed here because of vibrations from busses and whilst the road surface was even, this solution worked, however with the holes now ever increasing in size and depth this issue needs addressing urgently before further structural damage to the surrounding houses is sustained.
