Work starts to build noise wall on Warringah Freeway at Neutral Bay

Work is starting next month to build a new noise wall next to the Warringah Freeway behind Merlin Street at Neutral Bay which aims to reduce traffic noise for local residents.

“The NSW Government has contributed $300,000 to build the noise wall as part of the Roads and Maritime Services noise abatement program,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.

“Work to build the wall will be carried out behind numbers 8-10 Merlin Street at Neutral Bay on weekdays from 7am to 5pm for eight weeks, weather permitting. If night work is required, the community will be kept informed.

“Pedestrians and cyclists are advised the shared path on the Warringah Freeway will be intermittently closed during the work with traffic controllers to be in place to escort people around the site.

“The bus stop near the work site used by bus drivers only will be temporarily moved while the work is carried out.

“Residents are advised the brushwood fence at the rear of the Merlin Street properties will remain in place.

“Every effort will be made to minimise noise and disruption to residents and road users are reminded to follow all signs and directions by traffic controllers.

“For further information, call Roads and Maritime Project Manager Nishane Gunaranchithan, email or call the project hotline on 1800 822 486.

“This project is part of Roads and Maritime’s commitment to deliver safe, efficient and high quality services and infrastructure to the community and businesses of NSW,” the spokesperson said.
