Bulleen resident, Kon Kardaras is one of many who have been impacted by construction noises coming from works on the $16 billion Melbourne North East Link.

According to ABC News, residents in Melbourne’s north-east say they are subjected to “unbearable” noise, light, and dust from round-the-clock construction activity, with the builder only agreeing to implement mitigation measures if they sign a non-disclosure agreement.

“The din, the noise is really unsettling,” Kardaras said in an interview with ABC News, as he looked over his back fence at the giant construction works.

“Going to bed with that happening, I have to quarantine myself at the top of the house.”

Kardaras’ four-bedroom property has been in his family for 45 years, and he claims he can only live in two front rooms owing to noise and light.

In relation to the overall North East Link project, Kardaras told ABC News he was not opposed to it, in fact, he hailed its virtues, stressing that all he wants is for the builder to show greater concern for residents.

Kardaras said he would like the project to double-glaze his windows and while project staff had checked in on him, their response to the noise was to provide him with earplugs.
