Motion text

That this House deplores the distress and disruption to sleep and day-to-day life caused by noise from train horns; believes that the installation of broadband horns would produce a significant reduction in the nuisance caused by train horns; notes that industry estimates indicate that broadband horns can be fitted at a cost of £700 per train; urges train operating companies to take effective action to end the blight of excessive train horn noise; and calls on the Office of the Rail Regulator to discharge its duties under section 4(3)(b) of the Railways Act 1993 (as amended) to ensure that members of the public are not subjected to severe noise pollution arising from the operation of the railways.
