Airport in Merivale
Recently I’ve been worried about the increased noise pollution and traffic disruption in Merivale. I had been thinking it was Scirt repairing the Papanui Rd water mains and sewers.
Upon upgrading to the new Apple ios6 on my ipad and using the new Apple maps app, I worked out the source of the problem
The noise is in fact coming from Timaru Airport. It is now only 100 metres from our Merivale address. It seems Scirt has been beavering away at night relocating Timaru Airport to Heaton St.
It’s one thing to move schools but moving an airport into a residential neighbourhood is another thing altogether.
Can anybody tell me if the new ios6 “do not disturb” feature would help solve this problem?
