    Product Information


    Plans for new and upgraded railway lines, as well as growth in traffic on existing lines, sometimes prompt strong adverse reactions from local residents due to concerns about increased noise and ground-borne vibration from railway lines. Although rail is widely acknowledged to be the transport mode with the lowest environmental impact, noise and vibration caused by the interaction between the train and the track remains an important issue for the railway sector as a whole.
    The Train Track Interaction (TTI) Sector within the UIC Rail System Department (RSD) has set out to address these concerns and provide roadmaps on this topic with a view to offering new solutions. 
    This White Paper on Acoustics, prepared at the beginning of this process, reflects on the current situation and main issues and provides information on proposals for technical projects to conduct research and devise solutions for infrastructure managers (IM) and railway undertakings (RU).
