2012 Transactions on Transport Sciences  
This paper is focused on rail transport and the environment, particularly the relationship between noise from rail transport and the directives of the European Union. There are two main areas of legislation on traffic noise originating from the European Commission -Interoperability Directives and Environmental Noise Directive. At the beginning of this paper the noise sources from rail transport are noted. The following sections of this paper present the Directives on interoperability and their
