ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF SUBWAY RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEMS

This paper presents a discussion of the general levels of noise and vibration impact to be expected from new underground rail transit system facilities with examples of the typical levels newer facilities are producing. Also presented is some specific information on the spectrum and level of ground-borne vibration and noise produced by underground transit trains and a proposed procedure for reducing the ground-borne noise from new subway systems.
