STAIRRS focuses on three technical areas:

WP1

STAIRRS is developing a decision support system to help,

  • Railway operators and infrastructure owners determine the most cost-effective spend needed to introduce an optimal blend of noise reduction measures.
  • Legislators gain a better idea of the potential cost of any proposed noise legislation.

WP2

STAIRRS looks at measurement systems; to further develop and validate new measurement techniques such as:

  • vehicle/track separation.
  • characterisation.

These could help apportion 'noise responsibility' between operator and infrastructure owner.

WP3

Through a series of workshops, STAIRRS is creating a forum for the project's technical experts and decision makers/policy initiators from outside the project, to discuss, and hopefully reach consensus, on the most appropriate way to manage the balance of environmental needs, technical feasibility and cost.
