It seems no matter where you drive these days, you’re likely to be caught in some traffic hold-up due to a construction project.
The last 10 years has seen a rise in the number of construction projects that collide with our living and working environments as governments push to build new and upgrade old road and rail infrastructure that runs straight through our suburbs. If you’re unlucky to live or work in close proximity to these projects, then you are also likely to be subject to irritating and in some cases sleep depriving noise.
More and more councils, after pressure from impacted residents and workers are beginning to crack down on construction noise and these high impact projects now require the builder to provide a Noise and Vibration Management Plan (NVMP). This has led these builders to implement Noise Reduction Barriers as an essential element on their Construction Projects, to mitigate noise pollution emanating from the site, remain compliant and ensure noisy works are allowed to continue – even after hours in some cases. Smaller domestic projects are also beginning to see the value in keeping the noise down and the neighbours happy.
