Road is sinking and breaking up where its been repaired before

Reported in the Pothole on road/cycleway category anonymously at 11:58, Tuesday 30 June 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 372989.

The road has sunk causing the road to break up. Looks like it has been repaired before but has sunk again and is getting deeper each week. This is now causing severe vibrations throughout my house and several others and is going to cause major damage if not repaired urgently. This is directly outside 48b Woodgate Road, approx 2 feet past the entrance to 48b driveway and is nearly the full width of the road. Its probably on your records for previous repairs as its clear the road has been patched before. The vibrations are so bad now that upstairs floors move and tv’s shake. Have serious concerns this is going to cause structural damage to houses. The pictures dont really show where the road is sinking very well. More than happy for someone to come in my house and measure the severity of the vibrations and potential damage this will cause to the house/ houses. The picture with the yellow circle is where the road is sinking.
