Living next door to noisy traffic that disrupts the serenity in your backyard is no joke.
During my door-knocks, I’ve been hearing from Griffin residents about their traffic noise concerns.
They told me they were promised sound barriers that had never been installed.
When I visited with noise monitoring experts from the Department of Transport and Main Roads, I was frankly shocked at the noise levels.
During the visit, I asked DTMR to determine what the noise levels are, and build the case for sound barriers.
They agreed to install a noise logger and weather station at Bronze Court in Griffin for 4 days. DTMR North Coast District will provide a report on the measured noise levels in the coming weeks.
Watch this space for progress on how we will tackle this noise pollution.
