Around 4.30 and up to at least 5.30 yesterday there was a lot of car horn blasting which seemed to be coming from The Cut / Union Street junction. I have a feeling it was taxis, but was too far away to be sure. It could have started earlir and gone on longer, but I was out of earshot before 4.30 and after 5.30. It sounded like some sort of demonstration or protest. Does anyone know what was going on?
I wish someone told them they are doing it in front of a residential block and disturbing dozens of ordinary people rather that the London Transport officials sitting behind thick windows in Palestra. Who can we call to complain, I think Southwark Noise team will not deal with noise from the streets?
I don't see why the Noise Team shouldn't be informed - don't see why taxi drivers should feel free to disturb local residents anytime they want. Could also try complaining to whoever manages the Palestra building.
rather annoying, I live in the flats directly opposite and don't really appreciate the noise... lucky for me I have had double glazing installed recently...but its still pretty loud. can't imagine what it would sound like if i had my old crappy windows still!
but seeing as its a "protest" i am not sure if Southwark council could do much, probably infringe some sort of human right if they tried.
