Transport for London (TfL) is in the process of arranging residential noise measurements in this area, which will enable it to determine the cause of any noise disturbance – and any potential solution. Residential noise measurements are currently on hold due to London moving into Tier 3 of the Government’s coronavirus restrictions.

Rail grinding will be carried out on the Northern line in spring 2021, and is expected to include this section of track.

It is important that residents get in touch with the TfL Contact Centre if there are any issues, as this allows TfL to determine any noise ‘hotspots’. Key sites are reviewed on a monthly basis by senior responsible managers
