SOME CONSIDERATIONS ON NOISE PROBLEM OF HIGH SPEED RAILWAY IN JAPAN

At the beginning of the construction of the New Tohoku Line a survey was made with respect to the effects of high-speed train noise on the community along a railway, allowable noise limit and train noise control in cooperation with the municipal autorities of Sendai. This report presents the results of that survey. On the basis of these results, the Public Nuisance Abatement Council of Sendai City came to the following conclusions in the beginning of the construction work of the New Tohoku Line, which will be opened to traffic in 1976: (1) Peak level of train noise along the New Tohoku Line should be 70 dB(A) or less in the dwelling area, and this demand should be met as early as possible (within 2 or 3 years after the opening); and (2) At the time of opening it should be 75 dB(A) or less in daytime and 70 dB(A) or less in nighttime.
