Noise and Vibration Source. DB Bahn owned (DB Shenker UK) freight trains are causing high levels of noise pollution-up to 90dBLamax-and vibration for elderly and infirm residents. Further along the line, children are being shaken awake during the night.

The Railway Line
This UK line is six years old and is maintained and run by Network Rail. According to the UK environment agency, DEFRA, Network Rail manage the noise and vibration levels.

The People Exposed
On the left hand side of this video, immediately on the other side of the crossing, lies Sheltered housing. Many residents are in their 80s. This is not an isolated situation. It occurs day and night and impacts residents young and old right along the line.

We are emailing Deutsche Bahn
DB Environment Center, Berlin, Germany, a link to this video and asking them how they propose to address this issue. DB Bahn say they have high environmental standards.

DB Bahn Response
We will post their response to this problem in a subsequent post.
