Huon Highway Traffic Noise

A big thank you to the Kingston residents who met with me to discuss their concerns about the traffic noise impacting them from the Huon Highway following the upgrade of the Huon Highway/Summerleas Road intersection.
Residents told me that raising the level of the highway has resulted in unbearable traffic noise at peak times and in the early hours of the morning.
While this project received Federal funding, the design of the intersection is up to the Tasmanian Government. I will be writing to the Tasmanian Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Michael Ferguson, to urge the Government to install acoustic barriers along the highway.
