Owners of shaking homes in Buckhurst Hill told Loughton Way will be fixed in a month

Homeowners are hoping action will soon be taken to stop their houses shaking every time lorries and buses use their street.

People in Loughton Way, Buckhurst Hill, say they can feel vibrations caused by large vehicles being driven along the damaged road in bed at night.

They handed a 200-signature petition calling for repairs to MP Eleanor Laing five months ago and have finally been told by the roads authority that “extensive resurfacing works” will be done by the end of February.

Gill Sadik, 44, of Loughton Way, said: “It’s good if that means they’re not going to just patch bits up.

“The question is whether they’re going to dig down or just go over the top, and in a matter of months it’s going to be cracking again.

“When you’re lying in bed, you can feel the vibrations through the floor.”

Her neighbour Dominic Harris, 44, who spearheaded the petition, said: “I will wait and see what they do.

“There are some really bad holes in the road and they need to sort out the underlying problem.

“Sorting out the volume of traffic that comes past, the weight and the speed would help.”

Simone Barrow, customer services officer for Essex County Council, said: “I am pleased to advise extensive resurfacing works will commence along Loughton Way by the end of February 2013.

“The resurfacing works will be between Hurst Road and River Road and the vicinity of the junction with Blackmore Road.”

The council plans to repair the road as part of an £11m road repair programme across the county.

It is a main road to access the M11, why do people move to a busy road and expect it to be a cul de sac?

Filling the holes will not make any difference, they must be imagining the noise has got worse because of the lack of maintenance.

Oh dear Cornbeefur, your lack of understanding of the basics of driving and the Road Traffic Act are apparent once again.

Loughton Way is not a main access route to the M11. It is a B road. The main access routes are the A1168, A121 and A113.

KC's Fisheries is the best for miles around for a bit of fish.

People drive for miles to get there.

Pot Holes or no Pot Holes.

The smoked Cod Roe is fantastic.

I see that when you are proven wrong with simple facts you are only able to respond with childish, pointless comments. Glad to see your true colours.

Proven wrong with what? I know the road as I go to the excellent Fishmonger which is based in the road.

What on earth has the Road Traffic Act got to do with this thread?

Read the thread Shaking Al.
I did. It appears to be you demonstrating the inability to discriminate a main road from a B road and then rambling about a Fishmongers that clearly you are so obsessed with you have failed to notice the type of road you are on.
