Beyond The Sound Barrier
Beyond The Sound Barrier
A fence on the eastern side of the M1 near Long Eaton is supposed to act as a sound barrier for residents of the properties living on the housing estate on the other side. I don't think it is 100% effective if the noise of the passing traffic was anything to go by when I took this photo. The proximity of the motorway can be judged by the gantry carrying the overhead signs just beyond the fence.
