Increase in road noise this year

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) (NH) category anonymously at 14:16, Sun 4 June 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4629577.

We have noticed an increase in the amount of road noise this summer. We think it could be due to the trees dying. They were closely packed and after 23 years seem to have given up the fight. Can somebody please measure the road noise at the rear of our property and see if it within recommended guidelines. Thanks

We'd recommend contacting Defra directly regarding the noise level near your property. You'll find contact details for Defra at guidance/ contact-defra.
