Measurement and mitigation options for operational rail noise from London Underground affecting the Barbican Estate
The Chair noted that it is very disappointing that the residents at the Barbican Estate continue to face the ongoing noise and disturbance. The City of London has to accept that TfL has a number of challenges ahead of them at present, not least their funding position and given that TfL are now being asked to run more train services in order to provide social distancing on the trains. It was noted that the City of London is not in a position at present to press TfL to get the temporary speed restrictions put in place or to progress the longer-term solutions.
A Member noted the concerns expressed by the Chairman and accepted the fact that we are now navigating through challenging times and the rail noise will have to remain on the agenda for now. The Member thanked the Chairman and the Officers involved for their work on this matter.
The Chairman assured the Member that the Measurement and mitigation options for operational rail noise from London Underground affecting the Barbican Estate will remain firmly on the agenda.
