ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THE RAILWAY ENGINEER

In the field of environmental protection, the railways can refer to small space and power requirements and to the low number of accidents. Using railways for the transport of dangerous goods as well as for waste disposal and water protection has no adverse effects on the environment. The nuisance caused by rail and road vehicle noise is difficult to measure according to a common standard reference, the cause for this being the differences in frequency composition and the variations with time. The various noise abatement measures on the lines and vehicles require a high cost and engineering effort, which are both not always in the right proportion to the success so that a critical approach is necessary.
