Noise Mitigation - Managing the Effects of Building the Elizabeth line

The construction of the Elizabeth line has caused noise and vibration in some locations. This was controlled as far as possible from within the construction site, however, there were circumstances in which noise impacts arose that needed to be alleviated further.

One of the ways the Crossrail project committed to reduce these noise impacts was 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 was decided, what the package comprised of and how it was 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 was applied. We wrote directly to stakeholders inviting them to apply for the scheme if we thought they might be eligible.
