Noise - drilling until midnight

Reported via desktop in the Roadworks category anonymously at 11:01, Tue 5 December 2023

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS5283804.

On Monday 4th of December, we had to withstand drilling outside of our windows from 7 pm until almost midnight and subsequently making noise until 4 am.

It seems like the fact that there are residents living on Whitechapel Road is something mostly overlooked when planning works.

  • Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. It is much appreciated. These works have been pushed to nightworks due to levels of footfall and the market stalls along Whitechapel Road being open 6 days a week. These works are crucial in completing the design to improve the footpaths. We apologies for any inconvenience but there needs to be an element of noisy works at the beginning of the shift the break through the bound surface to be able to undertake the investigation works. If the issue persists, please raise another report or contact our customer services team on 0343 222 1234.

    State changed to: Fixed
