We are led to believe that the noise testing that was conducted in Andaman Street in October 2011 indicated readings were in a very high range.
Find below correspondence that JRA has received from the Transcity Community Relation team - the consortium entrusted to construct and manage disturbances for the Legacy Tunnel project. Comments in relation to this correspondence than follows:
Centenary Motorway - Noise Barrier Update
As a result of 20 residents’ response to the noise impact of their residence caused by the sound barrier that was taken down near Mitre10, JRA has lodged a request with the State Minister for Transport and Main Roads and MP for Mt Ommaney, Mrs J Attwood, for investigation work to conducted to seek a solution.
Most of you would have had first-hand experiences with the Sumner Road and intersection alterations that were commissioned on Thursday, 29 September, 2011. Unfortunately, to keep a corridor open for cyclists, the removal of the medium strip of the replaced bikeway crossing could not be done prior to the signalised intersection being made operative.
Long term residents in this section of Jamboree Heights have been requesting this footpath for over 20 years.
This street is used by many pedestrians to access the Mt Ommaney Shopping Centre and its associated facilities. How pedestrians haven’t been hit by motorists in a hurry over these years is due to their extreme caution.

Recently Cr Bourke has publicised in the local newspaper and letterbox drop his desire to correct pedestrian and traffic issues at the above intersection and is open to public input. A few JRA members, who had input into a traffic committee that was formed in 2009 to prioritise the traffic needs for Jamboree Heights, have made enquiries with the Executive. Below are some of the issues that could be considered.
