What are the permissible noise limits for construction noise?
Since January 2017, the National Environment Agency (NEA) allows selected construction sites to carry out quieter forms of work on selected Sundays and public holidays. However, contractors need to obtain a permit from NEA before carrying out such works, which will be granted only for specific construction phases, and on a case-by-case basis, subject to stringent conditions. To find out more on the established permissible noise levels for construction work, you may visit the NEA’s website here.
work at a site may proceed at any time of the day so long as the noise does not
exceed the maximum noise levels permitted.
