The use of deafening air brakes by trucks along Lorimer Street Docklands, directly adjacent to residential dwellings has become completely unacceptable.

Signs have been installed along main roads throughout many other areas of Melbourne to advise truck drivers not to use noisy engine brakes in areas adjacent to homes. In fact, such signs have been installed in the nearby Ingles Street and Pickles Street in Port Melbourne.

However, while the development of the Yarra’s Edge residential area has progressed along Lorimer Street, it seems that authorities have neglected to ensure the residential area is not affected by unnecessary, deafening air brakes.

This area of Melbourne should never have been developed into a residential area if authorities were not willing to stop trucks using air brakes in the area.

So please sign this petition for the installation of signs along Lorimer Street near the Yarra’s Edge development for truck drivers not to use engine brakes in this area.

Please also spread this message to others.

Multiple people within the same household can sign this petition individually, and even children can sign this petition. The more people that sign this petition the better.
