Will you ask TfL to consider what noise barriers (such as the replanting of semi-mature trees) are to be introduced in order to ensure New Cross residents along the ELL do not suffer increased noise problems when the extremely important and very welcome ELL is up and running?

TfL will shortly be submitting its Operational Noise report to the London Borough of Lewisham, which will set out the proposed noise barriers for the New Cross Gate area. The London Borough of Lewisham will then consult with local residents and TfL will be holding another of its regular communications meetings with residents in December to answer any questions they may have relating to the proposed noise mitigation methods.
