Drain covers still sinking

Work was carried out in early to mid March for drain covers on road side where traffic is going from west to east. The works removed the tarmac from around the drains and then poured concrette to try and stop the ground from giving way.

This only worked for a week and then after various HGVs have gone over it, one of the drains has now started to sink again causing the housing nearby to shake when they go over it at speed, earth quake simulator 2021, 2020 was bad enough.

Why they didn't choose to re-inforce the area around the drains I do not know as just pooring concrette alone will not fix the problem. Maybe moving the drains to the pavement which is a metre away would fix this issue once and for all.
