The current level noise is mainly caused by car traffic, and the light rail will not increase the noise levels.
The noise from the light rail line will be 10 dB lower than the noise from other street traffic. When the light rail line starts operating, the total noise level will essentially remain the same.
However, the light rail traffic may cause noise at curves and switches. We will attempt to place the switches so that the noise disturbances from crossing the switches will be as low as possible. The screech at curves will be avoided by using gradual turns. Ground-borne noise means vibration that travels to a building via the ground and is transformed into sound. Ground-borne noise can be prevented by installing sound-absorbing mats into sensitive locations.
