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.

Project Managers

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.

Case study

Earl's Court Station, London UK

"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.

Key Details
The noise problem
Track improvement works at Earl's Court tube station in London had been inconveniencing passengers for years. The Track Partnership planned to close the station for 12 days over the 2013 Christmas period to accelerate the project.
Our solution
The Track Partnership used our temporary acoustic barriers and tents to create an effective soundproof barrier between the works and the live station sections, to shield commuters and members of staff from excessive noise, dust and welding arcs.
The results
The rapid installation of our barriers allowed works to get underway without delay. The noise control they provided was so effective that the site was allowed to operate for 24 hours each day during the shutdown. Impressively, the Track Partnership did not receive one complaint from passengers or residents. We were asked to provide noise control for similar projects during the 2014 and 2016 Earls Court Christmas blockades. Again, Track Partnership carried out extensive track renewal work without a single complaint.
Our construction sound barriers will reduce noise complaints, improve worker safety, and let you keep work sites open longer, increasing efficiency and reducing costs. Learn more about our acoustic construction barriers.
