Question

The strategy says, "Current Noise Insulation Regulations for railways are based on the principle that noise from existing facilities is already known to local residents, and reflected in property values. New railways may not have been expected by existing property owners, who may be eligible for compensation. As with roads, the regulations do not apply where the use of existing lines is intensified." Can you confirm that London Underground will not be required to pay any compensation as a result of running the night tube?
