I know it's not ideal, but personally I'd like to see more roadworks done overnight (as they do in Hong Kong/China, and probably a lot of other places). It just all gets finished much more quickly, compared to, say months and months of digging up Borough High Street
. Boots sell some excellent silicone earplugs too, which I can highly recommend!
Amen to that Andy.
On a different,(but related), note, I was staying with family in Paris a few years back and my cousin told me that she was considering ordering a furniture delivery but was waiting for the outcome of some proposed legislation on road use.
Apparently the suggestion was that all deliveries in Paris could only be effected between 20.00 - 06.00 to ease traffic flow during the day.
The exception would be if the deliveries were enviromentally detrimental at night, i.e. noise etc.
I have no idea of the outcome of the proposed change, as it made sense, (to me), it was probably voted down, as it no doubt would be over here too.
