The construction of the Elizabeth line will cause noise and vibration in some locations. This will be controlled as far as possible from within the construction site, however there will be circumstances in which noise impacts arise which need to be alleviated further.
One of the ways Crossrail has committed to reduce these noise impacts is to provide a noise insulation package to eligible properties close to the works, as detailed in Crossrail Information Paper D9 - The Crossrail Noise and Vibration Mitigation Scheme.
Information Paper D9 includes information on how eligibility for the noise insulation package is decided, what the package comprises and how it will be provided. It also has a useful ‘Frequently asked Questions’ section.
A guide has been produced to explain in clear language how the Noise and Vibration Scheme will be applied. We will write to you inviting you to apply for the scheme if we think you might be eligible.
