Griffin noise monitoring underway

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.
