TFL to compensate the residents affected by the Tube noise and to comply with national and international noise standards

102 Signatures Goal: 1,000

We the undersigned, call on Transport For London to provide compensation to the residents affected by levels of Tube noise which fail to comply with national and international standards on noise.

TFL has so far refused to deal with noise complaints in a satisfactory manner, claiming immunity.

Some of the affected residents have complained to TFL for years while others have been forced out of their homes. Many have seen their lives, livelihood, and health compromised. TFL has repeatedly refused to compensate residents even in the most serious cases. It is also refusing to accept responsibility for recent sharp increases in noise as a result of poor maintenance and management, or to take steps to reduce that noise to an acceptable level.

    That's an unacceptable, plus the tube noise affects passengers as well, subtly damaging their hearing system and their brain. I suffered for that and can't take the tube now, unless really necessary. Maintenance is fundamental and there are no excuses to the lack of attention to the damage caused by the noise, only because isn't "visible". It affects our brain more than we can perceive, so we are all involved in this problem. The solution has to be found immediately!

    Noise pollution is the bane of city dwellers' lives. Metro systems in other capitals are virtually silent. Why not ours?
