Predicting ground-borne noise levels from tunnelling
We were brought into the Kowloon Southern Link project because of our particular expertise in ground-borne noise from tunnelling. Our responsibility regarding this issue has been to predict ground-borne noise levels in advance of construction and to interpret ongoing monitoring and continually update the predictions. Wilson Acoustics Limited is working beside us to predict and control noise from surface operations associated with the tunnelling process.
Our involvement has given confidence to Kowloon Canton Railway Corporation that ground-borne noise will be properly managed, including at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
