LUFF CONCERNED ABOUT NOISE FROM M5

Peter Luff MP has written to the Highways Agency expressing his concern about the lack of progress on noise reduction at junctions 5 and 7 on the M5.
He said that “several of my constituents in Droitwich have contacted me in recent weeks aggrieved that nothing seems to have been done to reduce noise from the motorway at Wychbold, near junction 5 of the M5 in the Oddingley area and at Whittington, north of junction 7 of the M5”

He went on to say that “rumours are now spreading suggesting that when the road is eventually resurfaced the Highways Agency will not use a low noise surface” and has asked for “clarification of the Highways Agency’s intentions in relation to the surface that they will use” so that he can squash rumours that they are backing off from previous commitments to resurface the road with a low noise surface.

Peter highlighted that low noise surfaces are cheaper than some of the more traditional higher noise surfaces and it would therefore practical to use the noise reduction surfaces.
