Reduced traffic noise for Taren Point residents
15 April 2020
Residents in Taren Point will experience less traffic noise with work set to start on a new northbound noise wall along Taren Point Road.
The project is being delivered Transport for NSW as part of the Noise Abatement Program.
Member for Miranda and Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Roads Eleni Petinos said Transport for NSW is planning to build the noise wall on the western side of Taren Point Road adjacent to Old Taren Point Road and up to Frederick Road in Taren Point.
"This noise mitigation treatment will be good news for the community in Taren Point, where there is often very high traffic noise from this busy stretch of Taren Point Road," Ms Petinos said.
"The noise wall will be around 360 metres long and five metres high. The texture and colour of the noise wall fits in with the local landscape, is low maintenance and discourages graffiti and vandalism."
Work hours will be between 7am and 6pm from Monday to Friday, and during the night from 8pm to 5am from Sunday to Thursday, excluding public holidays and weather permitting.
Work to install the noise wall will start in May and is expected to take around six months to complete.
Traffic control and lane closures will also be in place for the safety of workers and motorists. Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and follow the direction of signs and traffic control.
The Noise Abatement Program addresses traffic noise impacts from State roads in NSW, funded by the NSW Government and delivered by Roads and Maritime.
