The Action aims to reduce rail freight noise by retrofitting 10,122 freight wagons that are running along the EU railways network with silent LL brake blocks. The existing rolling stock is currently equipped with cast iron brake systems.

This Action will greatly contribute to reducing the level of noise that affects people living close to railways lines by up to ten decibels and to increased intermodal competitiveness of the rail transport compared to road transport.
