Sound sense in Southampton
When the Highways Agency reconfigured the road layout where the M271 meets the A33 in Southampton it was decided that neighbouring residential properties needed protection from traffic noise.
Arbus fencing chose Ransfords Noisewall® single-sided acoustic fencing panels and, as we can see, they were installed in a curved configuration to match the road layout. The panels are a mix of 4m and 5m high.
Matt Kelly of Arbus was more than happy with the way we responded to the requirement. “We’ve worked with Ransfords a great deal over the years,” he says. “Everything went smoothly from start to finish – and that’s just the way we like it!”
The picture below show how a typical acoustic fencing panel installation arrives on site: a full load, treated to Highways Agency standards, ready to be lifted off for assembly in place.
