A number of noise reduction measures for railway infrastructure are available on the market. The manufacturers declare their efficiency, often attenuation in dB. Sometimes the declared efficiency including service life is overestimated.

The main aim of our contribution is to show some results from the noise measurement of different noise reduction measures in normal operating condition. The presented results come from outputs of the above-mentioned project granted by TAČR (Technology Agency of the Czech Republic).
