Letter: Noise a constant nightmare for people living near SkyTrain lines

TransLink needs to find ways to tamp down decibel levels from elevated trains through residential neighbourhoods.
TransLink needs to do better to cut down on noise from SkyTrain, says a reader.


I live near Rumble Street between Gilley Avenue and Griffiths Drive. Same as the neighbours, we are suffering the endless noise pollution caused by the SkyTrains for more than 20 hours every day. SkyTrains are causing loud scratching sound on either directions, to Waterfront, to Production Way, to Surrey.

TransLink should have the responsibility to eliminate the noise pollution.

Nobody in the neighborhood has a good sleep every night. Who makes us unhealthy? Who makes us have hearing problems? Who gives us anxiety?

The answer is TransLink.
