Sound Bafflers along Bristol section M32
When the M32 was ploughed though Frenchay Stapleton and Eastville in the sixties there was very little traffic so the noise and pollution was minimal although the road was an eyesore which divided beautiful areas and thriving communities.
Now .however the noise and air pollution from constant 24 hour traffic is appalling. It can be heard from a mile radius away making life very unpleasant for local residentsbringing stress and ill health in its wake.
In Europe ,residential areas adjacent to motorways and dual carriage ways are shielded from the worst effects of traffic by attractively designed sound bafflers.
Let us do this for the long suffering residents of the areas near the M32
Why the contribution is important
It will improve the quality of life for the thousands of residents living in the affected area
It will increase wellbeing and improve health
It will help to regenerate these areas
It will make walking in Stoke Park Estate and on Purdown a much more pleasurable experience.
People will be able to hold a conversation in the street without shouting above the roar of the traffic !!
