NOISE FROM HIGH SPEED RAILWAY OPERATIONS
Developments in high speed railway operations are considered from the point of view of noise pollution. Existing methods of predicting railway noise are summarized and an assessment is made of the present day railway noise environment. Reasons are given for the acceptability of railway noise when compared to road or air traffic. Reactions towards future railway operations are outlined.
