TRAFFIC vibrations from a main road are blighting the lives of residents who are fed up with their windows rattling and homes shaking.
Neighbours in Hillingdon Gardens blame the road surface along Yeading Lane, which they say is badly in need of maintenance.
The vibrations stop some residents going to sleep, while others find they are constantly woken during the night.
Antonia Casali, 80, said: "I've been living next to this main road for 45 years and it's never been as bad as this. It's terrible, I can't sleep at night.
"The shaking wakes me up and moves me in my bed and, when you're my age, it's difficult to get back to sleep.
"I have had to go to my GP to ask him for something to help me sleep but even that doesn't really help.
"And during the day too, when the lorries go past you can see the windows tremble.
"This has been a problem for months since the road began to deteriorate. I complained to the council about seven months ago, but it ignored me. I got nowhere."
She said many of the neighbourhood's roads had been resurfaced.
"But Yeading Lane hasn't been touched. I don't know why, I'm worried about my health."
More than 20 residents signed a petition which was handed to the council by Northolt West End councillor Bassam Mahfouz at a meeting on Tuesday.
He said: "The condition of the road is having a serious detrimental effect on the health of residents.
"We've had plenty of promises and it's time the council turned these words into real action."
A council spokeswoman said: "We're concerned to hear the problems residents have been having with vibrations around the Yeading Lane area. Vibrations are not necessarily caused by the road surface, so we will send officers to the site to do tests to find the underlying problem and take action to address the issues."
