Strategic Noise Maps

Iarnród Éireann’s Strategic Noise Maps are provided for public access in accordance with the legislative requirements of the Environmental Noise Regulations 2006.

The Iarnród Éireann Strategic Noise Maps graphically displays the exposure of the receiving environment to noise generated by train movements along specific sections of the rail network, ie within Agglomeration Areas and/or where the operational rail traffic exceeds 30,000 vehicle passages per annum.

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

Iarnród Éireann has produced and published the Heavy Rail Strategic Noise Maps 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.
