Preliminary noise report: overview of noise impacts: Caulfield to Dandenong

This report has been prepared to provide an overview of noise considerations on the Level Crossing Removal Project: Caulfield to Dandenong. The proposed design centres on three elevated sections of modern separated rail viaduct. As part of the redevelopment of the rail corridor, rail noise emissions will be required to comply with the Victorian Passenger Rail Infrastructure Noise Policy, 2013 (PRINP). The policy has been developed to guide transport bodies and planning authorities in their consideration of the impacts of rail noise for improved or new passenger rail infrastructure and from changes to land use near existing and planned rail corridors. The proposed design will alter how noise is generated and propagates throughout the rail corridor and surrounding community. A range of design features will reduce the level of noise being generated, and noise walls will be included within the proposed design to further minimise noise transmission to the surrounding community.
