Underground Noise / a priority for the public health
Carry out the necessary work to considerably reduce noise pollution on the noisiest metro lines.
Why is this important?
More than a million of people takes the London Underground every day. Public transport is recommended by the public authorities for ecological and economic reasons, so it should not be an ordeal for the population. While specialists consider that above 85 decibels, hearing health is highly endangered, some parts of the underground lines (Northern line (between Camden and Kentish Town), Jubilee line or Victoria line) reach 100 decibels! In the long term, travellers using these lines are really endangered! As Londoners, we already pay a considerable price for this transport, and it is therefore legitimate that work is being carried out on these noisiest parts of the line. If you don't believe us, we invite you to use these lines more than twice a day and you'll know for sure. We hope that our request will find the right and responsible person. Sincerely
