We received a request from SNCF (French National Railways Company) to supply Noise Control Barriers for the work, “reconstruction of the Gare de Lyon in Paris”. The work consists of reorganising the platforms and granting access to rail passengers (TGV & TER). The Gare de Lyon is one of France's busiest railway stations with more than 100 million passengers a year. The Heras Noise Control Barrier turned out to be the most effective, simple, mobile and cost effective solution for the reduction of noise pollution at the railway station. The Noise Control Barriers and mobile fencing have been put in place by our French partner, ID ACIER. They have our products in stock so they can act quickly when requested. In recent years, we have noticed that it is very important to have these articles readily available. Often, noise reduction measures are only taken when complaints have been received from local residents, users or clients. It is often necessary to then put noise reduction measures into place quickly in order to ensure the work is not delayed, and especially to prevent the extra cost involving stopping work. In this case, the Noise Control Barriers are generally the ideal solution. In the Netherlands and Belgium, anyone can go to Heras directly for the hire or purchase of Noise Control Barriers.
