We need our sleep TfNSW, we say no night work for 5 consecutive nights!

This petition had 26 supporters

Transport for NSW (TfNSW) are building a Bline car park at Manly Vale (corner of Condamine St & Kenneth Rd).

TfNSW want to increase the amount of consecutive nights they carry out night works from the legal 2 nights (with 5 nights break) to 5 consecutive nights (with 2 nights break) to reduce the length of time it takes them to build the car park.

Residents especially those that share a boundary with the car park site, need their sleep in order to be able to function during the day and for their well being.

The nearby Manly Vale residents are entitled to a sleeping environment that is not disturbed 5 nights out 7 night between the hours of  7 pm and 6 am. Currently, we have information that there will be at least 55 nights work, which equates to 11 weeks of  no sleep. 

Lack of sleep during one night significantly impacts the ability of a person to function whilst also impacting their health. The impacts are increased significantly after 5 nights in a row, and exponentially after 11 weeks.

Some impacts of lack of sleep:

  • Increase risk of heart disease, heart attack, heart failure, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes
  • lead to accidents and injuries on the job or on the road
  • lose brain tissue
  • Reduced alertness
  • Increase in depression
  • Weight gain
  • Reduced awareness of the environment and situation
  • Reduced decision-making skills
  • Poorer memory
  • Reduced concentration
  • Increased likelihood of moodiness and bad temper
  • Reduced work efficiency
  • Loss of motivation

TfNSW are carrying out door knocks Mon - Fri when people are at work and leaving 'Sorry we missed you' letters, so we have decided to ensure that our voice and opinion is heard by setting up this online petition.

So if you value your well being and are against TfNSW conducting works 5 nights in a row for at least 11 weeks, please sign this petition and add your own personal comments.
