I know that you have received several emails about today's flyer posted to
Great Eastern Street residents informing them of continuous works from 8pm
24 Dec to 9am Dec 27. As if no respite over the Christmas period was bad
enough, given that we are all unable to get away makes this significantly
Further, we are given to understand that such works would have had to be
planned months in advance to be sure of low train numbers and safety on
the site. That we are only hearing about this now, 22 days before the work
will begin, is both injurious and insulting on the part of the contractors
and their clients.
We ask the council to discuss the potential for mitigation of this
construction work with the contractors and their clients. Today we were
forced to accept the prior approval of the train wash. The least the
contractors and their clients can do is act gracefully and allow us to have
a quiet Christmas.
Sincerely, Sean Rintel
