Measurement and mitigation options for operational rail noise from London Underground affecting the Barbican Estate
Officers reported that a number of LUL’s (London Underground Limited) current projects have been postponed due to the ongoing uncertainty following the COVID-19 pandemic and that the long-term financial package for TfL had yet to be agreed by the Government.
This would directly affect the proposed rail noise mitigations under the Barbican Estate as follows –
• The new timetable has been deferred until March 2021
which in turn has deferred the introduction of a
Temporary Speed Restriction (TSR).
• The proposed mitigation works to the Brandon Mews
points and crossing have also been put on hold until
the financial position is clearer.
An update will be provided once the financial position for TfL is confirmed, Officers hoped to be able to provide this to the Committee at their meeting in November 2020.
Historic drinking fountains and pumps
Members were advised that the historic drinking fountains and pumps could be removed from the list of outstanding actions, as they cannot be brought back into use again.
