Unfortunately the whinging and whining will continue while ever it's successful. There are many people whose lives would be improved, if someone would just tell them to urinate off and do something useful. Instead they are told that their opinion is important and a team of the best and the brightest are working on their concerns. Rozelle goods Yard was regulated into oblivion by a noisy local minority and the corridor between Sefton and Liverpool now features an enormous concrete wall, to protect residents from noise generated by trains that have used the corridor for 100 years.Absolutely.Not unlike the people who built their homes at the end of the Essendon Airport's runway 08, off Matthews Road, and then campaigned to have the airport closed because aircraft approached the field over their houses. Essendon opened in 1921, the first of those houses appeared in the early 60s.Same attitude as the people who move into the inner city for the vibe and then complain about the noise from band venues, people in their street late at night, weekend traffic, lack of on street parking etc etc etcHere's hoping a steel mill or nightclub opens up next to your home, so you can enjoy the thrills of constant noise pollution.
A very silly and completely irrelevant comment. The railway has been there for decades before this person came to live there, and then wanted things changed to suit her. If it started up after she was established there she'd have a good case; as it is, she doesn't.
If you don't like the sound of trains, don't go and live near the line - simples.
A story that has been repeated right across the nation from Melbourne's Fitzroy to Adelaide CBD, inner city Sydney and Fortitude Valley in Qld and many other places around the country
