It may be the start of a new pattern but in the last couple of days i think that the CEMEX plant at 1 Rufford Street has moved its first deliveries of aggregate back to 0800 rather than the traditional 0700 early morning wake-up call. This morning’s delivery (video at this link for full beeep-beeep-beep-rev-rev-rev-huge-crash sound effect) was at about 0800. This is an improvement, but it remains unacceptable to create this much noise full-stop, let alone before 0900 in a residential area.
There is no earthly reason why the huge hoppers need to be filled-up first thing – they could fill them the afternoon beforehand. It is not as if the gravel is going to go anywhere overnight.
I have a call out to CEMEX to see how their environmental investigation is going. Anyway, it is nearly August when the plant traditionally goes fairly quiet
