At Mornington Crescent, Transport for London (TfL) completed the installation of further resilient track fastenings – and rail joint removal - in October 2018. The resilient track fastenings have significantly reduced noise levels, and the majority of noise complaints have now been closed.

TfL is currently assessing what further options to reduce noise levels are available at this location.
