Report of the Town Clerk.
The Committee received a report of the Town Clerk setting out the current list
of outstanding actions:
Measurement and mitigation options for operational rail noise from
London Underground affecting the Barbican Estate
The Committee was informed that the long-term financial package has now been agreed by the Government at £1.8billion in total. London Underground Officials are now scrutinizing their individual budgets to see what will mean for the proposed noise and vibration works. The City of London is yet to find out if the previously agreed works can go ahead. On a positive note, the four lines modernization programme is going to be funded, and it is going ahead, with the deadline being around March 2021.
The Chairman noted that this is sufficient improvement from our previous conversation with TfL on this.
A Member asked if the Committee could place on record its commitments to ensure that that the measurement and mitigation options for operational rail noise from London Underground affecting the Barbican Estate remains on the agenda. The Chairman assured the Member that the Committee would ensure that this remains as an important agenda item. The Committee will continue its highlight level engagement with senior levels of the TfL.
