Railway Noise and Vibration Surveys

New rail schemes can generate significant levels of noise over large areas. AF Acoustics has many years of experience of dealing with major rail schemes and carrying out detailed noise and vibration assessments.

Our work has involved carrying out the detailed studies using prediction methodologies contained in Calculation of Rail Noise, and the assessment methodologies using the Noise Insulation Regulations 1988 and Noise Insulation (Railway) Regulations 1996.

AF Acoustics extensive noise and vibration services to the railway sector covers construction and operational aspects for both underground and overground railways and include:

  • baseline noise and vibration studies
  • impact assessments
  • groundborne noise & vibration
  • development of calculation procedures and design aims
  • Section 61 (Control of Pollution Act 1974) Consent Applications
  • ventilation shaft design
  • noise barrier design and testing
  • commissioning / compliance studies
  • identification and specification of mitigation measures
  • noise insulation assessments

Our acoustic consultants in London have provided noise and vibration services to various main contractors on the Crossrail project. We have produced many Section 61 assessments, and have worked closely, and obtained a good working relationship, with many of the local authorities along the route.

railway noise pollution reduction

We have ensured that noise from fixed plant at many of the stations along the Crossrail route are complaint with the relevant standard and papers. We have also undertaken compliance monitoring to ensure our work meets the Crossrail requirements. AF Acoustics have worked with Crossrail, Network Rail and multiple contractors to ensure over 100 Section 61s, dispensations and variations have obtained consent from local authorities. We have produced detailed noise monitoring programmes, and unattended and attended noise and vibration monitoring across the route.
