Quiet please

Many residents and drivers have noticed the reduction in noise caused by the new quiet surfaces on parts of the M3.

After many years of campaigning against road noise, this is good news, but it's only the beginning. In many cases only one or two of the three lanes on the motorway have been resurfaced, and many areas have been left untouched.

The latest government noise maps recognise that motorway road noise through Eastleigh and Chandler's Ford is amongst the worst in the country.

We want action to fix this with quiet surfaces across all the lanes of the motorways and, if necessary, noise barriers in the affected areas. 

Please back our petition calling on the Government and the Highways Agency to need to finish the job and resurface the roads whose noise is blighting local people's lives.


To the Secretary of State for Transport:

The Highways Agency has started to put low noise surfaces on motorways and trunk roads near residential areas in South Hampshire, but in many cases in only completely one or two out of three lanes.

We, the undersigned, call upon the government to finish the job and give us back our peace and quiet.
