This report gives a list of the research planned with respect to railways, trams and underground railways.

The research programme comprises research into practicable methods of measuring the noise emitted by rail traffic, research on the relation between the amount of noise emitted and its effect, measurement of vehicle noise emission, emission caused by shunting activities, zoning systems, criteria for new stock, research on the noise of warning installations and signal horns, and on noise emission from stations, listing of noise-sensitive receivers, financial consequences, and an investigation into vibration caused by rail traffic.
