Complaints over noisy road

Article Written By: Skegness Standard

Angry residents at Burgh le Marsh have spoken out over 'phenomenal' noise levels coming from a newly re-surfaced road near the village.

Campaigners have launched a petition in response to the work on the A158 bypass, registering with Lincolnshire County Council that they are now suffering increased noise levels as traffic passes over the surface.

Councillor Neil Cooper, of East Lindsey District Council for Burgh le Marsh, said the noise was 'phenomenal'.

He said: "We live a mile-and-a-half away. Through the summer, with the windows open, the noise at two o'clock in the morning was keeping us awake.

"They have spent all that money to ruin a perfectly good road."

He added: "I think the county council need better funding through Central Government to allow 
them to do the job 
properly."

Brian Dinsdale, 60, who lives just off the A158, described the sound as a 'racket'.
