UIC and its Noise expert group are pleased to announce the release of its second edition of the Sustainable Development Newsletter on Noise, coordinated by Nick Craven, Head of Unit, UIC Sustainable Development Department.

The Focus starts with the EuropeTrain project that ended very successfully, and continues with articles on UIC Noise reports that have recently been completed and are available at UIC website. The topics cover “Rail Dampers Acoustic Rail Grinding Low Height Noise Barriers”, the “Railway Noise Technical Measures Catalogue”, the “Real cost of railway noise mitigation”, and “Real noise reduction of freight wagon retrofitting”. It then focuses on the RIVAS project aiming to reduce the impact of vibrations and the CargoVibes project assessing the impact of vibrations on human beings.
