The UIC Network meeting on Noise and Vibration was organised by Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) on 23 and 24 October in Utrecht. Participants discussed the EU developments for noise and vibration issues, technical measurements for acoustic track parameters and other EU organisations and projects.
Trafikverket in Sweden gave some information about their study which is being conducted to establish national guideline values for ground-borne noise from railway traffic in tunnels at night-time.
As agreed by members, to get a broader picture before deciding on what indicators and values to use, the online questionnaire has been prepared on the UIC website for all noise and vibration experts.
Please complete the questionnaire at the link below before 14 November.
The results of the questionnaire and the outcome will be communicated and discussed at the next noise and vibration meeting. The next meeting will be held on 11-12 March 2020 in Berlin.
Thank you very much for your feedback.
