Thank you for your email received on 24 July asking for information regarding noise and vibration.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our Information Access Policy. I can confirm that we hold the information you require. You asked for:

  • Noise and Vibration report done in Barbican in 1979
  • Report done prior to moving a Crossover nearer to Barbican - same time
  • Documents relating to noise and vibration complaints since 2014 between Barbican and Moorgate
  • Documents relating to track replacement, maintenance and specification for sub surface

We ran a number of searches through our archives catalogue for Brandon Mews, Barbican, Crossover, Cross over, Moorgate, vibration, noise pollution. Attached (CAR-095-1819) are the results that match your requirements most closely. We made a request for the 1979 report (LT000649/078) Noise and Vibration from Underground Railways Affecting Residents – review of findings and problems, 30 May 1979. Unfortunately we weren’t able to find specific reference to Brandon Mews within the report. Attached are scans of the summary to the report which outlines its findings and a table you will be very welcome to book an appointment to see these items in the search room. We are open Monday-Friday 10:00-13:00, 14:00-16:30 by appointment. We ask all requestors to bring with them a form of photographic identification plus proof of their current home address on their first visit. Please also note that our catalogue is available online so if there are other search terms you would like to look for you are very welcome to request to view other items your own search brings to light:

Please also find attached documents relating to noise, vibration and tracks within the Barbican estate since 2014.

Please note that in accordance with TfL’s obligations under Data Protection legislation house numbers and other personal information has been redacted, as required by section 40(2) of the FOI Act. This is because disclosure of this personal data would be a breach of Article 5 (1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation, which requires personal data to be processed lawfully, fairly and transparently. It would not be fair to disclose this personal information when the individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions in Article 6 necessary to determine that the processing is ‘lawful’.
