– Before the road was built, living here was very quiet and nice. After they started digging, everything was destroyed.
This was stated by Gunn Signi Gusto, one of nine homeowners who demanded 3.7 million noise compensation from the Norwegian Public Roads Administration this fall.
The reason is the high traffic noise from the new National Road 3/25 passing his house in Lotan in Hedmorgan. However, after the stre Innlandet District Court handled the case, all claims for compensation were rejected.
An exception. Gustu gets a new spruce tree that will replace the tree that was destroyed by construction during growth.
It was Lestlendingen The case was first mentioned.
Gustavo tells Dagblatt that this decision is absurd and that living on the road now is too bad.
– Road builders do not care about our quality of life. It’s beyond our night’s sleep, the homeowner says we can not sit outside in the summer now or during development.
He also says he thought about selling the house.
– I want to, but I think I can not get back what I gave, so it will be hard.
Arne Meland, project manager of the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, denies that they care about the quality of life in Gusto and neighboring countries.
– We do, but we do not want to take that discussion in the media, he says in a short comment to Dagbladet.
He goes on to say that the optional court states that the Norwegian Public Roads Administration has followed the current state guidelines for noise calculations and noise protection.
– We are considering the decision of the district court, says Meland.
The appeal is being considered
The court’s decision states that the limit for obtaining compensation is higher as a result of the development of a new highway.
Attorney Derje Hensroot, appearing on behalf of the landowners seeking compensation, said Lestlendingen They are now considering appealing the case:
– No, no compensation. The court found that the limit values for noise had not been proven to have been exceeded. The benefit of court treatment was not as expected. Hensrut tells the newspaper that I will now carefully review the decision and, within a month, consider with the landowners whether we should appeal.
