Vibrations to houses from heavy vehicles

We are getting very strong vibrations from heavy vehicles travelling along Gamblins Road. Large trucks & all buses that pass down here seem to send a sudden shudder through houses, it feels just like a mini earthquake. And as you can imagine, as buses pass down here on a frequent schedule, it isn't very pleasant at all. I understand, that roughly 2 months ago, some remediation work was taken out on the road, from St.Martins road round-about, up to number 10 Gamblins road, which had some positive effect, for a little time, but it seems to have settled back to almost worse than it was before the works were carried out. I am concerned mainly, on what the constant sudden movements are doing to the structal integrity of my house over time, and I was wondering if there are any plans to do any further remediation work on this road?
