Noise created by essential rail maintenance and track renewal works can mean disruption to commuters and especially to those who live in close proximity to railway infrastructure. Echo Barrier provides temporary sound absorbing barriers that fit to fencing surrounding the work area to provide an effective noise control system.
The effectiveness of our barriers means that some rail projects can extend their working hours because of both the noise attenuation and rapid installation – making for an earlier potential completion date.
Contractors can also benefit from the ability to brand the acoustic barriers with a corporate image or relevant community message about the pending project.
We are proud to have played an important part in working at locations around the world including the Rail Link project in Victoria, Australia, as well as at projects relating to London’s Underground network, including the upgrade to Tottenham Court Road London Underground station on behalf of Vinci/BAN Nuttall. To read more about this case study, along with others, please see the news section.
In cases such as these, our barriers dramatically reduced noise nuisance for the thousands of commuters passing through the city daily, the Echo Barrier H-Series literally soak up sound around them rather than reflecting it, attenuating noise by up to 20dB.
If you want to benefit from the experience of a company that understands the intricacies of construction and maintenance projects on rail tracks and in underground or metro stations, contact us to make use of Echo Barrier’s very extensive expertise in this field.
