Request ID: FOI-1488-1920
Date published: 27 August 2019

You asked

I ask if you did surveys and studies of how having these newer, bigger, faster trains on the tracks would affect the local area, and if so, I would like to see a copy.

We answered

Our Ref:         FOI-1488-1920

Thank you for your request asking for information about surveys and/or studies done regarding the introduction of the new London Overground trains.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) and our information access policy.

We do not hold the information you have requested. Acoustic noise tests were carried out whilst the trains were tested in Derby, however no studies were carried out on how they affect the local area.

Please accept our apologies that we are unable to assist you further on this occasion.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely

Gemma Jacob
