Wandsworth roads named among capital's quietest

Wandsworth Guardian: Aeroplane noise is the most common complaint in London Aeroplane noise is the most common complaint in London

Two roads in Wandsworth have been named the quietest in the capital despite complaints from residents about plane and traffic noise.

Sabine Road, Battersea, and St Margaret's Crescent, Putney, were chosen as two of the best 10 places to get a decent night's sleep in London.

The survey was conducted using data from noise control consultancy 24 Acoustics and the London road noise map, published in 2003, which was the original indicator of residential noise pollution.

Bob Arthur, from Sabine Road, said: "I'm not sure they have tested our road properly.

"If it's not aeroplane noise, its people speeding down the road at all hours.

"But maybe house prices will go up because of it."
