Frequent Speeding Causing Heavy Vibrations

Reported via desktop in the Road surface issue category anonymously at 16:24, Wednesday 3 February 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 387070.

Hi, I couldn't seem to find option for frequent speeding in the built up area of Fengate. This is a frequent issue going both directions in this area.

Could a deterrent be added in like a speedbump or speed camera to stop people from driving far beyond 30 miles an hour please.

Also, when large vehicles keep speeding by without care, it's causing vibrations to my house (I'm sure I'm not the only one) which I'm concerned will cause major damage in time.

This problem could get worse as more houses are built which is worrying me and potentially cause me unnecessary cost.

  • The speeding is also causing damage to the road and therefore, the council would need to be involved?

  • The road is still damaged and certainly needs fixing properly.

    Could we please ensure this happens?

  • The road damage looks to have had a patch job however, it's been done quite poorly. This is likely to be causing the vibration problems.

    The vibrations are more noticeable when large vehicles go by even when doing the speed the limit.

    Could we please fix the road properly. I'm sure in the log run it would be cheaper than fixing any damage to nearby houses.

    As more houses are being built in Moulton Chapel and traffic is already increasing, would be worth adding some speed deterrents to prevent the road being damaged further after the fix?

    Many thanks.
