Question

Residents of Devonshire Close and Devonshire Street sent TfL a letter on 29th October 2018 with concrete proposals to deal with the unacceptable levels of Tube noise they suffer. Do you think it’s acceptable that they had yet to receive a full response by the end of April this year?

I understand that the Managing Director of London Underground’s office wrote to the residents’ representative on 25 February 2019 explaining that recent rail improvement works had reduced noise and an update would be provided on any future planned work. The challenge of using resilient track fixings at the site, as suggested by the resident, was also explained.  

Transport for London (TfL) is currently assessing if there are any future mitigations that could be carried out to further reduce noise to properties that may still be affected. 

I have asked TfL to provide you and the residents’ representative with an update regarding Devonshire Close and Devonshire Street within 10 working days.
