LRT expansion in major cities has become prolific in recent years and many municipalities have plans for significant growth. As part of each project, noise and vibration assessments are conducted and noise models are generated to ensure minimal impact for adjacent residential areas and adjacent commercial locations with highly sensitive equipment. ACI has conducted many noise and vibration impact assessments and measurements for LRT.
Heavy Rail (CN and CP) is also a concern for noise and vibration. In particular, residential developments proposed adjacent to existing rail lines require specific attention during the design stage to ensure compliance with local requirements as well as those of the Rail companies. ACI conducts noise and vibration measurements as well as generates computer noise models to determine the minimum setback distances required and impact of noise berms and noise barriers.
