UIC urges the rail community to take part in an online survey to learn more about noise from stationary and parked trains and obtain a better understanding from the perspective of infrastructure managers and operators.

Noise from the track and wheel interface is the dominant noise source but is not the only cause; UIC’s new study will help to better understand the noise emitted from trains that are stationary, idling at signals or parked in depots. For more detailed information on this study, please visit the webpage: Kicking off the study for the management of noise from parked and stationary trains in Europe

The online survey on management of noise from stationary and parked trains focuses on the following four areas and includes 28 questions in total:

  • Regulatory frameworks,
  • Complaints,
  • Controlling parking noise,
  • Measurement data.

UIC invites you to take the online survey via this link to broaden understanding, promote infrastructure managers’ and operators’ best practices and increase knowledge-sharing by participating in international platforms. Railway experts must address this particular issue if the railways are to be a good neighbour.
