Chippenham road stop ML

I'm living at 164 Shirland road, I have the Chippenham Road stop ML right under my window. Every time the buses stop here, bus drivers leave engine on. The result is a lot of noise during the whole day, until night. I've got 187 bus few minutes ago with engine on for 10 mins. The same usually happens with bus 414, they both stop here and 414 especially terminates it's journey here. I really appreciate if bus drivers could turn off the engine when stopping here, if they have to stay at the bus stop for a ling time. Noise is so much loud that I can't even watch the tv or sleep, even with my windows closed. This summer I had to shut my windows several times, even in the hottest days, because of the exhaust gas. Road is always busy, not complaining about that, but if they can turn off engines to avoid fuel wastage, noise and smog would be really helpful. I was wondering if a sign could be posted on the bus stop, advising to turn off engine when it's possible. I've seen a lot of sign all around london, I was wondering if this could be done as well in this area. I have a tape of the bus, recorded with my phone but unfortunately I can't upload on your page. Thank you.
