HS2 construction noise and vibration methodology report

Describes the methodology which will be adopted to monitor noise and vibration levels arising from construction activities, required for the completion of the HS2 project.



Monthly noise and vibration monitoring reports will be published separately, presenting a summary of contractors’ monitoring data from all HS2 worksites active during each calendar month of works.

HS2 Ltd and its contractors are required to undertake noise and vibration monitoring, and produce monthly reports, to comply with the Code of Construction Practice (CoCP). The reports are specific to each local authority area along the Phase One route.

The CoCP forms part of the Environmental Minimum Requirements (EMRs). The EMRs set out high-level environmental and sustainability commitments to be carried out during the planning and implementation of works along the Phase One route.
