Australia's border policy is not for other countries to discuss. It is our right to own it.

Political relations expert and John Howard’s former chief of staff Grahame Morris says he is fed up with foreign activists “giving us curry” about the way Australia governs its borders.

North shore residents have been subject to jackhammering and excavation six nights a week. And the end is not yet in sight.

🔊 Turn the sound on and hear it for yourself

But they should be working with sound blankets. I worked on a project where the EPA was called in because we did not meet the sound levels we stated in the construction plan. The other thing is why does the work HAVE to be done at night? I mean, other than the morning and evening peaks, there is a fair slice during the day that the work could be carried out.

Soooo let me get this prayerfully straight - the North Shore residents have to put up with 3 years of this while many other areas of Sydney have to put up with it 24/7 and sometimes give up their homes? - where's that violin? :-)

It’s atrocious. Surely there is a responsibility in the construction companies to relocate Eric health shouldn’t have to suffer. Everywhere in Sydney there is construction work going on all the time.

That would suck! I know from living close to the cbd that noise like this starts driving you insane, especially when it results in constant sleep deprivation

...Not just in Sydney...everywhere in major Australian capitals...the effect is the same on peoples' lives as a low level "terrorism"...it is even worse than terrorism because there is No End to it...and there's nothing you can do about it... except do like they done in America... fight for your turf, hire the Mafia to clean up the town.

They could always move to the western suburbs

Well what do you expect for a couple of million dollars ? A view and Chirping birds?

Might be some karma for being LNP voters. :)

Yikes. I almost go crazy listening to this video for a minute. Let alone 3 years !

Well they have made a lifestyle choice to live there. Like Aboriginal people in remote communities ;)

Sneha this is what you hear

I thought there were noise regulations where that sort of noise was not permitted after a certain time of night. They talk a lot of noise restrictions on The Block TV show.

Where are the ICAC investigations into these contracts

Oh no, building something causes noise. The sky is falling.

Cary - I really feel for you 😵

Poor little diddums try living next to the Westconnex or light rail.

Just like Forrest Sth Yarra Vic ..... 5 yrs!!!!!

So. WHAT?

Three years, poor buggers 😢

There's lots of businesses in the City of Perth that are struggling. How are the ones advertised on this page chosen? Are there any kickbacks involved?

They have to make up for it some how cause they know they can't take bribes anymore when they are building infrastructure 😐
