Noisy overnight Road works on Dominion Road expected to last 16 continuous nights

Nanette from Mount Roskill

Extremely noisy, over night road works are happening on Dominion Road and are expected to carry on for the next 14 nights without a break. Furthermore, they apparently don't have a permit to do this work. Yesterday, I called the Auckland Council after having absolutely no sleep on Sunday night due to these road works. I was informed that the Road work company did not have a permit to do this work and that it is expected to carry on for 16 nights. Auckland council assured me I could contact noise control if they continued to work at nights and they would help sort this out. When the road workers started working the second night (Monday night), I contacted Noise Control as advised and I was informed that there was nothing they could do as the noise was not continuously excessive. However, the noise gets extreme at intermittent times. It feels like toture to have to spend the next 14 nights without sleep. People who work are not able to sleep during the day. Does anyone have any ideas on how this can be sorted out?
