RPA Luas Line, Dublin Ireland
Date: Jul, 2008
Location: Dublin, Ireland
The Railway Procurement Agency (RPA) awarded Ventac the contract to supply and install 57 metres of barrier along the Luas rail line in Beechwood, Ranelagh.
The barrier is 3 metres in height and made of timber. Most of these works were carried out at night so as not to interfere with the Luas timetable. The RPA had received several complaints from residents living along that line.
After the installation of the acoustic sound barrier, the residents were satisfied that the noise had now been reduced to an acceptable level.
