Channel Tunnel Freight

Our role was to undertake an impact assessment, on behalf of the London Borough of Bromley, of the noise generated by freight trains running down to the Channel Tunnel on existing suburban lines. This involved carrying out detailed predictions of the noise impact on residences in the Borough due to freight movements taking place through the night time period.

In order to mitigate the noise impact on existing houses, line side acoustic barriers were specified, and the precise extent, type and cost of the screens was negotiated with Railtrack to be installed by them.
