Borders Railway Noise and Vibration Report
IKM Consulting Ltd (IKM) was commissioned by Network Rail to undertake noise and vibration monitoring of the operational Borders Railway to demonstrate compliance with the Waverley Railway Noise and Vibration Policy (ERM, 2008). The purpose of the report is to set out Network Rail’s commitments for mitigating noise and vibration effects during the operation of the Borders Railway. As laid out in the report, Network Rail is required to instruct monitoring of the operational effects of the railway, at six monthly intervals for the first three years after the railway opened to passengers and annually thereafter. The policy document is legally enforceable through Section 46 of the Waverley Railway (Scotland) Act 2006.
