CEMEX noise update and more video

Readymixplantruffordst_3 The CEMEX plant on Rufford Street has caused local noise pollution for many years.  Recent contact with CEMEX and some history are detailed at this link

I have now had a short letter back from the President of CEMEX UK operations, Ignacio Ortiz.  He acknowledges my letter and  pins  resolution of the issue on  an internal environmental compliance investigation by  Joanne Wilson.  (My scanner is not connected so i can’t scan the letter in yet).  I would expect the investigation to finish in the next couple of weeks and then there will be a correspondence between CEMEX and the Council.

It is a small but important achievement to have recogntion of the issue from the CEMEX UK’s overall boss and a formal internal investigation.  But the proof of the pudding is in the eating – when we know what the investigation reveals and what actions will be taken to eliminate the noise.

I have also shot some more short video clips of the CEMEX plant that try to get across the wall of sound made by tipping gravel.  You cann see the videos by clicking here .  In the latest clip at that link the tipping noise even drowns out a passing diesel intercity train labouring up the hill under full power as it accelerates away from Kings Cross (and we know how noisy they are…….).
