Railway line noise

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on 25 August, 2013

Again, an early Sunday morning disruption for those living near the railway – particularly in the Rollason Chase area, Victoria Road and Kings Road/Warley Hill I understand. I think, if my calculations are right, this is the last weekend of this but I am checking with Environmental Health.
