ÖBB-Infrastruktur has invested more than 20 million Euros in the last ten years in noise abatement measures. 900 kilometres of noise barriers along our rail routes bring the residents more peace and quiet and improve their quality of life. Both in new builds and when extending routes, noise pollution measures are always included as components in the planning of a project. On existing rail routes ÖBB-Infrastruktur pursues the objective of efficient noise abatement, together with state authorities, urban and rural municipalities.
Information for residents
We keep our facilities in perfect condition - round the clock, seven days a week. However, the bulk of our work is done at night and at the weekend. This can cause construction noise. We are aware of this and give our residents specific notification.
