Over recent years Transport for London (TfL) has received six complaints from residents in this area. Following these complaints, TfL carried out re-railing and joint removal works.

In recent weeks, TfL has received a further complaint regarding Tube noise in this area. TfL will arrange for further readings to be taken in this property and carry out any practical action to reduce noise levels.

I have asked that TfL officers keep you updated on progress.
