24x7 construction ... is this acceptable?

I woke up by the construction of the DUKE Highway early Saturday morning ... *Sigh* 

Guess what? the highway construction company sent out a memo stated that they would work on Sunday too for the coming few Sundays. This is unacceptable... they were working 6 days a week from 8:30am - 7pm... and on some weeks the worked over the time... it's about 50-70% of the week they worked until 9pm... So, what do you think? Are we too much to object them from working on Sunday? Anyway, no matter how is the other resident/communities decision, my stand is very firm... No tolerate for working on Sunday. Reason being lots of us are working from Monday to Friday and we need Saturday and Sunday to get some relax for the following week. Since Saturday they have the rights to work for a full day and now they requested us to allow them to work on Sunday... Come on! This is a ridiculous request... DUKE Highway Construction Company... 

Dear Project Director,  please consider the resident health and they need to get a quiet moment on Sunday!!! I understand your team is chasing against the time to get the highway completed. You have no rights to take away our Sunday i.e. a day without the noise of the construction. Would appreciate if you could plan on no working on Sunday into your project plan and forget about the request.... We would be much appreciated if you would not take away our Sunday... Be considerate please!!

Anyway, if they forced through to work on Sunday... I think the committee members also should force through no working after 6pm daily... I meant they need to stop @ 6pm sharp... no overtime is allow even they could not complete their work... This actually is the law set by DBKL. 

What would your stand if you were staying near to the highway construction like me?

24x7 working should be very efficiency, the project should be very fast to finish... but does this apply to malaysia? sound weired... normally malaysian style took whole year, may be 2 to 3 year to finish just a small road...

and traffic jam for the whole project behind

There was a day I think was last few weeks, where my housing areas also got construction to repair the water pipe. Guess what, at night !! So noisy and we cannot sleep.. I guess got people complaint and the next time they did it earlier..

iCalvyn: you think if we allow them working 24x7, they will complete the job earlier... i would say we are dreaming .... in our dream :-p

Simple Alex: Of course for me i think it's unacceptable... so last Tuesday, we had a meeting with the YB and iron out... NO WORK ON SUNDAY... hurray!

Keeyit: Complain to your Member of Parliament (MP) but if the MP is from Bxxxxxx then just search for other alternative... don't waste your time... they hardly will help u... We experienced that for our area... fortunately the MP now is not from Bxxxxx otherwise i would have to suffer for at least 3 Sunday... hehehe :-p
