A letter writer says the noise level on 88 Avenue near 140 Street has become unbearable for nearby residents.

Overwhelmed on 88 Avenue

The noise level on 88 Avenue between 140 and 139 Streets is to the point of unbearable.

The noise level on 88 Avenue between 140 and 139 Streets is to the point of unbearable.

There has been temporary patching and replacement of manhole covers. Over the years, the road surface has been slowly deteriorating due to the large and congested truck traffic that is trying to evade the tolls on the Port Mann Bridge.

Also the referendum on 84 Avenue was rejected to relieve the traffic on 88 Avenue, which has led to greater volume of traffic.

Residents had the unlawful use of engine brake signs installed. This also has fallen on deaf ears and there is a lack of enforcement. The engineering department admitted that it was unrealistic to enforce due to the heavy amount of traffic.

My personal complaint is the constant rattling of my windows. I even had to make adjustments to my front door as my house is gradually twisting due to the fact of the constant banging and vibration.

The only solutions are: Fix our street and divert the trucks.

Enough is enough. How would the engineering department personnel like it if we recorded our noise and played it on loud speakers on their front lawns? Maybe at midnight?

I rest my case.
