Question

In the last two years or so I’ve persistently raised questions with you and direct with TfL to get support for a number of local residents of Ashburnham Road for effective remedial measures from well demonstrated tube noise arising from track changes. I’m pleased that TfL has recently made some progress towards procedures for procuring contractors with right ‘products’ to deal with the noise issue. May I urge your intervention in this matter to speed up the process to ensure that acoustic barriers are in place sooner than later?

I have urged Transport for London (TfL) to continue to investigate a resolution as a matter of urgency.

I understand that TfL contacted you last month to advise you that it is in discussions with potential suppliers for an acoustic barrier. I have asked TfL to ensure that both you and local residents are provided with a further update by the end of this month.
