A27 noise

Need some advice from anyone residing in Southover/ Winterbourne. How bad does the road noise from the A27 get? Do you ever get used to it ? Does it really irritate you when you're in your gardens ?

In terms of Kingston Rd - I think it largely depends on the specific location - tree cover etc. We are fine, just a dull hum when the wind is in the wrong direction - but we have a decent cushion of trees. Others suffer more

Used to live in Delaware Road, and found that wind direction made quite a difference. It could be quite intrusive when in (south-facing) garden but did get used to it.

If you are near the Haredean allotments the noise is horrendous even with the trees in leaf

As i recall, the last time the A27 (I think about 10 years ago) was resurfaced they promised that next time it happened they would put on a low noise surface. It must be getting near resurfacing again. Does anyone else recall this? We must hold the council to this.

It's not the council who're responsible for the A27 resurfacing, it's the Department of Transport. Time for Norman to take action in his new role as a minister there?

A friend stayed a few nights in a B&B in Montacute Road and found the traffic noise intolerable, all through the night, even with double-glazed windows tightly shut.
Down at the bottom of Winterbourne, it doesn't seem so noticeable though. Maybe sound doesn't travel so well downhill!

It's an odd thing. We live on a busy road in the centre of town and I've become entirely used to the intermittent sound of traffic going right past the house, but if I'm anywhere over the far side of the High Street, I find the constant low background hum from the bypass completely unbearable.
Guess it's just what you get used to.

I can't say I ever notice the bypass where ever I am in town. Maybe growing up here I've just learnt subconciously to filter it out?

The motor bike racers on a Sunday morning are a pain!

Decent Citizen - do you mean that huge crew that often seem to come through town about 8am of a Sunday? They're a bit too bleedin' enthusiastic for that time in the morning if you ask me. Haven't they got anywhere better to play?

More than likely unless there are more.They race along the bypass. I have seen it for years on an early dog walk in Ham Lane.

Actually, I would like to add to what I have written above. I understand your concerns about medical marijuana, especially if you... more
