Excavation by contractor across road not level with existing road surface

Reported in the Road surface issue category anonymously at 13:47, Wed 24 October 2018

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 2 minutes later. Council ref: 340087.

This was caused when the contactors dug a trench across the legbourne road outside our property. They failed to leave the surface level, consequently, every time an unladen lorry or van or a vehicle towing a trailer hits the bump. It causes a very loud noise in our lounge. We are both 77 years old, and dread the noise every few minutes. I reported this problem soon after the work was carried out in the summer, so that they could come back to remedy it. The contactor told me he would need a further permit or he would be fined £3000?
