THE HEALTH AND WELLBEING of residents is significantly affected by constant noise, from 5:00 in the morning until late into the evening.

VicRoads released a noise assessment of Rosanna Road in May 2016.

The noise from traffic impacts on the amenity and health of residents on and surrounding Rosanna Road. Trucks use engine brakes day and night, disturbing our sleep and right to peace. Residents several streets back are affected by the noise. It’s unacceptable that the mental health of so many people is impacted by traffic noise from this road.
