Railway noise

Several thousand homes are protected against noise with acoustic screening, and many more have been offered soundproofing grants, since Rail Net Denmark initiated its Noise Project together with the Danish Environmental Protection Agency.

"Preventive efforts in the planning and execution of the train operations cannot reduce the noise impact of the homes along the existing infrastructure. And that has necessitated an active effort to combat noise and provide noise protection," explains Lisette Mortensen, a noise coordinator from Rail Net Denmark.
