House shaking from traffic

We moved into a flat on Henderson Street a year ago and the flat has been constantly shaking due to the steady traffic and the buses (22, 35, 36) going along the road. Now with the no. 16 also being redirected this way to accomodate the tram works, the shaking is even worse. We are on the second floor, and the flat vibrates and trembles, up to every few minutes depending on traffic. Speed is not the only issue - due to the tight road, cars parked around and bends all over, it's not possible to go too fast (although some still manage). The rumbling and trembling occurs whenever a bus or a larger vehicle goes by. Very disconcerting for building safety, as well as the inconvenience of being shaken all the time, to the point of sleep disturbance.
