Transport for NSW has finished building the Chandos Street Noise Wall to reduce traffic noise for nearby residents between St Thomas’ Rest Park and Brook Street, Crows Nest.

We would like to thank local residents for their patience while we carried out this important work.

The noise wall was delivered as part of Transport for NSW’s Noise Abatement Program, which aims to reduce the impact of high level traffic noise at residences near existing State roads.

Work to build the noise wall started in October 2019 and took around nine months to complete. Our work included:

  • preparing the site for the noise wall construction
  • installing noise wall panels
  • installing transparent panels to reduce shadowing
  • planting semi-mature trees and shrubs

If you have any questions about the project or would like to provide feedback, please email us at nsw_projects@dmroads.com.au or call us on 1800 332 660.

Project information

The Chandos Street Noise Wall will start from St Thomas' Rest Park and end at the start of Brook Street off ramp. It will measure about 197 metres long and about 4.5 metres high.

Construction will start on 30 October 2019 and take about 10 months to finish, weather permitting.

We have been working with the local community since 2018 to listen and better understand what is important to residents in Crows Nest.

Where possible, we have incorporated feedback and suggestions into our design, like changing the length of the wall, incorporating landscaping suggestions and refining our construction work so we can build the wall faster and with less night work.

In late 2018, we asked for community feedback on the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) which addressed the community and environmental impacts of the new wall. We received seven pieces of feedback on our REF.

After assessing and considering all community feedback, the noise wall was approved for construction in 2019.

We will take about 10 months to build the new noise wall, weather permitting.

Feedback provided by your community late last year indicated a preference to carry out work 5 nights a week, for up to 60 nights, so we can get the noise wall built as quickly as possible.

We will carry out our work between:

  • 7am and 6pm Monday to Friday
  • 8am and 1pm Saturdays, and
  • 8pm and 5am Sunday to Friday.

No work will be carried out on public holidays.
