Railway Noise Barrier Walls

 

The Austrian Research Association for Roads, Railways and Transport (FSV) has published the Guideline for Planning, Construction and Maintenance of Railways (RVE) 04.01.01 “Noise Barrier Walls – Calculation and Construction“ (only available in German) which is used in the field of noise protection of railways. This RVE guideline refers to railway-related regulations with the construction of new noise barrier walls adjacent to the high-speed railway network.

The aim of this RVE is to define consistent technical standards for noise barrier wall structures like barrier wall elements and gates along high-speed railway tracks. Approvals are given separated for elements or gates for railway track speed limits of 160 km/h (99.4 miles/h) and 250 km/h (155.3 miles/h).
