I moved into my new home with my husband at the beginning of this year and have had lots of problems with the amount of noise and vibrations being caused. The road we are on (Locket Road) is a fairly busy road which is understandable due to location and a 'speed table' was introduced at the Cross section next to our house several years ago. However many many drivers do not appear to adhere to the speed limit resulting in a huge amount of noise when going up and down the bumps In addition to this at least 4 or 5 times a day, i notice the walls and lights in our house shuddering due to some trucks on the road. I am unable to confirm the specific type of trucks causing the issue. There was a specific example yesterday where the entire house was shuddering for a good 20seconds before the vehicle in question even went past the house.

I have been in touch with the council who have said there isn't anything to be done but I'm getting really fed up now. I am constantly awoken at all hours of the day or night and wouldn't consider myself a super light sleeper. I have sent them videos of cars obviously speeding and clips of the noise generated.
