Proved evidence has shown that some people do suffer from railway noise, and that may even affect their sleep during the night, while others not. The reason behind this difference involves several factors. Some of…show more content…

Therefore, a thorough investigation about the noise pollution coming from trams needs to be considered also. Despite the researcher's initial theory of noise pollution increasing proportionately with the proximity of the building to the railway tracks, it turns out that this factor does not affect the noise level at all, as some of the respondents confirmed that they hear nothing although they were the closest to the tracks. This is since other sources of noise pollution (trams, cars, people, etc.) are covering over the railway noise pollution. If all sources of noise pollution will be analyzed and avoided, we will then have a clean and non-polluted areas, even though they are still locating at the same place. Consequently, people will enjoy a healthy life and will be ready to perform better without suffering from any external noise, nor having alternative solution to protect themselves by
