Wheel Squeal ;Channel Nine
Residents met with Harvey Biggs, reporter Channel Nine, regarding the ongoing problem with noise from the freight trains and Belair Line. Interestingly, the Seaford Line is not quiet either and rattles away before and after the dive. Residents in Chromer Pde must be hoping for better things when the line is eventually electrified. I was given less than 2 hours notice to get a group of residents together, however, with a few phone calls and door knocking in the Grantley/ Arundel/ Cranbrook area there were enough people there with a story to tell that should make interesting viewing. The reporter particularly wanted to talk to residents in their homes, there were plenty of volunteers to do this. Luckily, a freight train made an appearance during the taping and one of the residents had a great tape of the wheel squeal recorded recently.
