Every day I hear extremely loud Buses driving along Waterloo Road, emitting very intense loud "roaring" noise as if driving along in first gear anybody else noticed how there appear to be many more of these buses?

I suspect the "roaring" noise you hear is the turbo unit forcing high pressure air from ambient into the diesel engine's cylinders.

This "roaring" noise is pervasive and not specific to buses navigating Waterloo Road.

Welcome to urban life in London.

Yep, unfortunately TFL has diverted many buses down Marshalsea Road and i have been told this will continue till 2014. Not good news at all.
