    They say they will do something but seriously, how much can be done? Very limited, isn't it? Sound is not single directional so blocking one direction means no more sound? They say they'll do something about it and at most only reduce the sound to a more bearable decibel but still irritating.

    It's a good effort finally since Singapore always claim world class transport system but other countries install noise barriers yet Singapore did nothing.

    Must live up to your claim, LTA!

    Use egg shell cardboard. Cheap and good. Just need to apply special weather treatment for water proofing.
