$10 million NEA fund to help construction firms reduce noise levels at work sites

A new $10 million fund to help construction firms invest in quieter machines and noise control equipment with the aim of promoting a quieter living environment was announced by the National Environment Agency (NEA) on Thursday morning.

The move comes as the NEA revealed that complaints and public feedback on construction noise have been on the rise, averaging over 16,000 per year due to the growth in construction projects.

The Quieter Construction Fund (QCF) will defray up to 50 per cent of the purchasing cost or the lease of noise-reducing hardware.
