Development of new external noise limits for electric rolling stock on the transport for NSW network

By: Vegh, SergeMaterial type: TextTextOnline resources: Click here to access online In: Acoustics 2015 Hunter Vallery 15-18 November 2015Abstract: In December 2014, the Asset Standards Authority (ASA) of Transport for NSW (TfNSW) published a new version of the TfNSW Rolling Stock General Interfaces engineering standard. It included a new set of clauses covering external (environmental) noise limits for Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) rolling stock. The previous limits were aimed at diesel locomotives which have higher values than would be expected for an EMU, with EMU noise limits traditionally being addressed in contract specifications for each class. Clauses covering external noise limits for EMU rolling stock in use within the Sydney Metropolitan network were previously dictated within procurement contracts.
