Working at night

Some work needs to be completed at night to to ensure the safety of workers, pedestrians and motorists, and to minimise traffic impacts.Some of the work will be noisy and we try to reduce the noise when we can. Some ways we do this include:

  • using barriers and sound blankets to reduce the noise
  • the use of squawkers rather than beepers on vehicles
  • only using noisy machinery when necessary
  • doing noisy work early in the evening when possible
  • directing the noise and lights away from residents when we can
  • talking to residents before the work starts, to let them know what to expect
