Noise wall installation

Mon., 18 May, 2020

Noise wall treatment is the primary noise reduction method for the R2P Project between the road traffic and nearby properties.

In May 2020, the R2P Alliance commenced the installation of noise walls with properties that share a boundary with the road corridor in the following locations:

1. South Road - eastern side between Pym Street and Hotchkiss Crescent.

2. South Road - western side between Pym Street and Royce Avenue.

The R2P Alliance has been working with property owners and tenants to coordinate the works and access requirements.

Noise walls are being constructed using precast concrete panels, 3.5 metres in height and “woodland grey” in colour.

The first step in the installation process is piling to install the steel posts that will hold the noise wall panels in place. The panels will then be painted and installed using a crane.
