Transport for London (TfL) is still assessing the impact of under-rail pads.

TfL is currently trialling methods of reducing in-carriage noise, which includes under-rail pads, at priority sites. Further installation work is due to be carried out from August 2019, with assessments due to be carried out by autumn 2019.
