Abstract


In order to upgrade the track structure for train speed of up to 160 km/h, approximately 62 km long section of railway line Oštarije-Knin-Split is in process of reconstruction. To complete the reconstruction, noise protection and railway level crossings safety features need to be incorporated on the track. This paper presents the process of rail traffic noise protection project creation. Project predicts both active and passive noise protection measures – construction of noise protection walls and building isolation. Noise protection walls described in this paper will be the first rail noise protection structures on Croatian railway network.
