Consultancy & advice
Most track renewal and maintenance work is done to tight timeframes at night and at weekends, to keep commuters and the economy moving. That puts huge pressure on contractors to cut noise disruption and get the job done on time. Echo Barrier’s award-winning temporary noise reduction barriers are the ideal solution for these demanding conditions, the barriers can be installed and removed quickly and with minimum manpower.
Our innovative acoustic barrier technology can reduce noise from rail works by as much as 20dB, a 90% noise reduction. This not only improves conditions for local communities and workers, but allows contractors to increase their site operating hours. The ease and speed of installation also improves site efficiency and allows more work to be delivered in a shorter time span. It takes just one person to install one of our lightweight panels, it’s also quick and easy to reposition them along the track as work progresses.
Our barriers never get water-logged, and remain in top condition, no matter what the weather. You can also brand them with your company logo or safety message to promote your work.
Seek our advice at the planning stage to formulate a flexible, easy-to-move noise control solution for rolling rail works. We can also help mitigate any noise issues that arise during the course of rail engineering projects, whether it is for maintenance or new build.
Our barriers can be installed and removed quickly with minimal manpower providing a perfect solution for rail works in constrictive environments and working to tight construction programs.
Our consultants can provide noise abatement solutions to enable all-night rail maintenance work that meets noise regulations – and minimises disruption to train timetables. The Echo Barrier H series are simple to install, move and store providing the perfect temporary noise control solution.
We offer expert advice on optimal erection and dismantling methods for rolling rail works, which maximise speed and ensure safe working practices. We can provide noise reduction solutions that protect workers from excessive noise, yet still allow safe communications on-site so work instructions or safety warnings can be heard and acted on. Our barriers help control dust and debris from rail works, protecting staff, residents and the general public.

Earl's Court Station, London
“"Echo Barrier once again provided us with a solution that really works."„
Amir Rashid, Track Partnership
To speed up lengthy track improvement works, Earl's Court tube station was closed for 12 days over the 2013 Christmas period. Effective noise control was needed to enable longer site operating hours and make the project a success.
The Track Partnership installed our temporary acoustic barriers and tents to reduce noise and dust pollution. The project finished on time – without a single noise complaint. Read more
