Freight trains cause ‘major disturbance’

Tags: ,


An independent report has raised “significant” concerns over noise levels from freight trains in Stirling. Stirling Council commissioned a detailed study after complaints from residents along the Stirling-Alloa-Kincardine line.

A report from consultants in acoustics and vibration concluded that night-time freight trains were causing a noise nuisance. The council is taking legal advice on what action could be taken.

Resident complaints about noise and vibration from the trains increased significantly after freight trains, mainly delivering fuel to Longannet Power Station, began running at night in December of that year.

Stirling Council commissioned a report, which will be presented to the environment and housing committee on Thursday.

The report concluded “We believe the impact of night time freight train operations meets the criteria required to constitute a statutory noise nuisance.”
