A quieter place for North Parramatta residents
26 April 2021
North Parramatta residents are enjoying a quieter life following the recent completion of a new noise wall along James Ruse Drive between Belmore Road East and Bellevue Street.
Dr Geoff Lee, Member for Parramatta said the noise wall was delivered as part of the NSW Government's Noise Abatement Program, which provides mitigation treatments for high traffic noise areas.
“The new 195 metre long noise wall, built on the southern side of James Ruse Drive, is a win for local residents as it will reduce the level of high traffic noise in the area,” Dr Lee said.
“The delivery of the noise wall marks the completion of the entire noise wall upgrade along James Ruse Drive, with the finish, texture and colour fitting in seamlessly with the local landscape of the North Parramatta region, while discouraging graffiti and vandalism.”
Transport for NSW started work on the noise wall in October 2020 and is pleased to have delivered the project on time.
Transport for NSW thanks the community for their patience as this important work was carried out.
