FEB 2021Noise barrier construction to start

During October and November 2020 we completed site inspections and survey work to confirm geotechnical conditions and locate utilities to inform the final design of the noise barriers.

We are now finalising the design of the noise barriers to ensure they align with the look and feel of Berry village.

Construction of the noise barriers is expected to start in Mid-May and should take about 3 months, weather permitting.

Project information

The NSW Government has committed to installing noise barriers along two sections of the Princes Highway, near Windsor Drive and Huntingdale Park Road in Berry.

While the noise mitigation measures already in place at this location are performing as intended and current noise levels meet the requirements of the NSW Environment Protection Authority and the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, Transport for NSW is doing more to address the concerns of the community.

Why are we building noise barriers?

The NSW Government has committed to providing noise barriers at Berry in response to concerns raised by the community.

How will the noise barriers be built?

Building the noise barriers will include vegetation removal, piling and then the installation of posts and panels.

What will the noise barriers look like?

The lower part of the noise barrier will be an opaque Hebel panel and the upper part of the panel will be transparent acrylic.
