Health Risks to Residents
I attended an interesting meeting yesterday evening with a small group to discuss noise issues associated with the trains. While the traffic and pedestrian signals have been turned down at Victoria St, East Ave and Fairfax Ave there are many other crossings yet to be treated along the line. We need a commitment to improve the noise emissions disruption to residents by both political parties. Also discussed was the ongoing noise from the freight trains, the Belair trains and the Seaford trains (especially the sound and penetration of this sound of their horn noise). The risks from diesel and other carcinogens was also discussed. What is required is further investigation into the effects that the ongoing noise and pollutants is having on the general health of Unley residents. Also required should be an investigation and debrief of the entire rail project as it has affected residents.
