Airport is gone but not the noise

      1 Comment on Airport is gone but not the noise

The Bangalore Airport has moved to a new location outside the city. But for the residents near the old Airport, the noise has not gone away. The wind tunnel near the old Airport is being operated quite frequently and the sound — like that of a jet engine — is deafening; and we are more than a mile away from it. For those closer to the wind tunnel, it must be unbearable.

The wind tunnel was probably installed when there were hardly any residential communities nearby. Now there are a lot of apartments and houses surrounding it. There must be some way to reduce the noise. If not, moving the wind tunnel is the only option. This will be expensive. However, for the sake of the health of the community, this should be considered.
