Council wants £500,000 to erect sound barrier to stop gypsies hearing abuse from motorists

A council is planning to spend up to £500,000 building a noise barrier beside a dual carriageway after a group of travellers complained about the sound of passing vehicles and abuse from motorists.

Around 50 people who have moved onto the camp beside the A14 near Milton in Cambridgeshire say their lives are being made a misery by the constant rumble of traffic.

They also claim they are being victimised by passing lorry drivers who are beeping their horns, flashing their lights and shouting obscenities.

The barriers could be installed when the dual carriageway is improved during a major project beginning next year.

But Tory-run South Cambridgeshire District Council insist the travellers shouldn't have to wait that long in such an 'uncomfortable place to live'.

The TaxPayers' Alliance yesterday branded the plans 'a farce'.

Spokesman Mark Wallace said: 'Given that the residents of this site are self-declared travellers, it is amazing that they do not simply move on somewhere else if they don't like the fact they are living next to a dual carriageway.

'There is very little reason why taxpayers should bear a massive bill because of the surroundings people have chosen for themselves.

'If you choose to buy a house next to a dual carriageway then you know what to expect. It should be no different in this case.'

The camp, known as Blackwell, was opened as a transit site for travellers in the 1970s but became an official council-run facility in 1993 and home to a settled community.
