Further to Question No: 2017/2480
In extreme cases of disruption and disturbance due to very excessive tube noise to the extent that a resident cannot live in their home, will you consider a scheme of offer compensation or alternative accommodation for residents so disturbed by tube train noise?
Your response being:
'Transport for London (TfL) is committed to tackling Tube noise and vibration problems at source, not through compensation.
Where the effects of noise are extremely serious and I expect TfL to prioritise work in locations where noise levels are highest. TfL is aware of one location on the Victoria line where this is the case, and work is currently underway to reduce the noise, with a resolution expected by July. The resident concerned is being kept regularly informed of progress.'
What are residents supposed to do, if TfL are unable to tackle the noise sufficiently either timeously or in some cases, at all, so as to enable reasonable enjoyment of a home? Move out? Or put up with it?
