MAXIMUM VALUES FOR RAILWAY NOISE PRODUCTION; A PROPOSAL

GRENSWAARDEN VOOR SPOORWEGGELEUID; EEN VOORSTEL

The draft of the noise nuisance act allows maximum tolerable values of noise at the facades of houses alongside railway lines to be defined. This article provides a proposal on this matter. There are two basic questions: is it possible to develop maximum values for railway noise production based upon analogies with road traffic; and at what noise levels are the maximum values for l-max (the maximum noise level) and l-eq (the equivalent noise level) found. The author gives values dependent on the speed of the trains and the traffic intensity expressed in coaches per hour.
