I could hear a noise from a machine of some sort in within my house in Bickerton Road. A have been hearing this on numerous occasions over the last 6 or 8 weeks or so, I decided to investigate. I thought that it might be a huge machine in one of the many science areas around us. Walking along the London Road on my quest I passed Brooks campus and onward to the old press site opposite Brooks. The noise was coming from within. Getting loader and loader as I passed through the main gates. Half way through the site I came across the noise. Unbelievably it was a road sweeper sweeping all the leaves from the internal roads of the site. After having a chat with the very nice driver I was enlightened. These vehicles have contracts in the sites around headington and more, of course. I feel, even though they are doing a grand job, that these vehicles have a very sonic and penetrating exhaust system. I could actually hear the sound inside my house, front and back, over 3/4 of a mile away. I don’t have an answer to this. Please advise.
