It is becoming apparent that the installation of noise damping pads on Northern Line track is not working. Homes near Mornington Crescent, for example, have seen noise levels increase to even more unacceptable levels. What will you do about it?

Noise readings taken at homes show that at most sites where TfL has installed resilient track fastenings, noise has reduced by over 10dB. TfL will continue to review individual cases but evidence of using resilient track fastenings shows that they are effective at reducing ground borne noise.
