What is the period of time that Pandrol Vanguard is expected significantly to reduce tube noise? What do you propose to do when the benefit of PV installation has worn off, as it is now doing at some sites where it was installed?

The supplier of these products advises that they are expected to be effective for around ten years. Transport for London (TfL) has been installing resilient track fastenings for around three years, and they continue to be effective. As a relatively new methodology on the LU network, TfL continues to monitor the impact of this technology.

In cases where residents notice an increase in noise levels, they are encouraged to contact TfL’s Contact Centre by emailing [email protected]. If noise measurements show that noise levels have increased, TfL will consider what further practicable works can be carried out and advise residents accordingly.
