If you ring the noise team they will tell you if they have asked for permission to work at night. They probably have (and as far as I can see Southwark always agrees it), but complain anyway, I always do and you never know, someone might notice!!

If they don't have permission and are claiming it's emergency work, ask for an officer to go out and check it's actually an emergency. We had a claim of emergency work when they were replacing benches and lights on waterloo east station at 2am, it was a seating emergency, clearly.

I have written (by e mail)to the enviroment team to complain that we were not given warning re the resurfacing work - our bedrooms are right on the road and my son has not had a decent nights sleep this week. The road does need resurfacing badly but why this could not be done of a weekend as the water mains were is beyond me.

Oddly, there were warnings written on the road surface itself (in white spray paint) last week, which I haven't seen done before. The yellow signs that you more usually see hung off lampposts only seemed to appear in the last day or so.

it just seems ridiculous.. i am not on the main road itself but its needless disruption, i shouldnt have to sleep in earplugs all week..

i rang the southwark noise team 02075255777 last night.
i suggest anybody directly affected rings tonight.. they need to visit your property and take approx 45 min to attend.. so dont leave it too late..but we should do what we can..

i wonder if the bermondsey hotel are giving refunds???

again its dreadful disrespect to residents from southwark council..
i have also e mailed the environmental team but no replay...

does any one know what time they actually start/stop working..???

my son's teacher has complained tonight about him being very tired and not concentrating this week-hardly surprising given the noise level

I hate it when they write on the road, it stays for years before it fades if they aren't actually resurfacing over it, we have some near us, and it's such a bugbear for me!!!

I am so happy they are doing the work. it was long overdue. When I bought my flat, I made sure it was not on the main street as I did not want to put up with traffic noise. By the way, it is only for 5 days.I will ring the council to say how satisfied I am with them. I am really pleased with Southwark council.

Community spirit? We are all going to benefit from a properly resurfaced street, no potholes and less noisy.
