Strategic Noise Maps

The Strategic Noise Maps for the Iarnród Éireann ‘Major Rail’ extents are provided for public access in accordance with the legislative requirements of the Environmental Noise Regulations 2006.

The Iarnród Éireann strategic noise map graphically displays the exposure of the receiving environment to noise generated by train movements along section of the network designated as Major Rail, i.e. where rail traffic exceeds 30,000 vehicle passages per annum.

To provide more context to the Strategic Noise Mapping exercise and to explain some of the technical details, Iarnród Éireann has produced two separate explanatory documents (General Information and FAQs). These documents will assist the public in interpretation of the information displayed on the Iarnród Éireann Strategic Noise Maps.

These strategic noise maps have been produced only for the purposes of the Environmental Noise Regulations 2006. Iarnród Éireann will not be held responsible for any outcomes that may arise from the use of these results by any party for any reason other than for the purpose of fulfilling the requirements of the Environmental Noise Regulations.
