Xi have strong experience and competency in other transportation areas including rapid transit systems, and rail noise assessments. Xi produce work in line with the UK established reference documentation, produced by the Department of Transport, for the prediction and monitoring of railway noise is Calculation of Rail Noise Memorandum (CRN).
