When Morrison Utility Services needed to lay distribution cabling they made a call to Echo Barrier for acoustic noise control solutions.
As a consequence a project that had faced local opposition during planning received zero complaints.
The noise problem
Morrison Utility Services were contracted to install 8.5km of distribution network cabling on behalf of Western Power Distribution. This entailed excavating the main street of a busy local community, and noise control was an urgent requirement.
Morrison used Echo Barrier temporary roadside barriers. The barriers were assembled in no time with no hassle, and they kept noise to an absolute minimum. The Echo Barrier team were on hand providing technical support if required.
The temporary acoustic barriers had an immediate impact, and despite prior opposition from residents and business, after deploying Echo Barrier solutions there were zero complaints, and even comments on how surprisingly quiet operations were.
