Reducing traffic noise on Captain Cook Drive
31 October 2018
Caringbah residents living near a busy stretch of Captain Cook Drive are enjoying a quieter suburb with work now completed on a noise wall between Murrami Avenue and Carabella Road.
The project has been delivered under the under the NSW Government’s Noise Abatement Program to reduce the disturbance of traffic noise for local residents.
“The noise from vehicles on Captain Cook Drive has been impacting local residents for many years, including from large trucks travelling to and from nearby work and industrial sites,” Mr Speakman said.
“To address this issue, the NSW Government through Roads and Maritime Services built a noise wall from Carabella Road to the end of Murrami Avenue.
“With the noise wall now complete, the community will experience less noise pollution from the busy road corridor of Captain Cook Drive.”
The wall is around 330 metres long, 3.6 metres high and 2.5 metres from existing residential fences. The texture and colour of the noise wall fits in with the local landscape, is low maintenance and discourages graffiti and vandalism.
As part of the work, Roads and Maritime completed landscaping and new kerb and guttering on Captain Cook Drive, between Murrami Avenue and Carabella Road.
