Very loud noise into the night - roadworks

Reported via desktop in the Roadworks category anonymously at 23:34, Wed 23 March 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3411796.

I have reported very loud noise from roadworks into the night past midnight several times to the council, they say I should report to you as they have no authority over the works, however, as a resident I was not informed that these works would be happening outside normal hours. To quote your site:

Construction companies and contractors must by law take all reasonable steps to control noise and work within certain times, usually from 7.30am to 6pm. If they want to work outside these times they must apply for a special permit from the local council.

What is the impact? Having to tolerate either constant or intermittent nuisance noise can be exhausting, especially if it happens through the night.

It can also make people feel isolated and helpless, unable to relax in their own homes.
