The part of the road outside Ask Italian, 5 George St, is subsiding around the water and gas supply surface boxes. This may be linked to the water ingress and damp issues within our basement as the surface water will possibly be tracking down the cracks and finding its way into our demise around the pavement lights. While onsite we noted several buses stopping right on top of the area pictured possibly putting great pressure on the joints around the pipework which could be weeping.
