Information on Midland Metro

Alan Cox made this Freedom of Information request to West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive

West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive did not have the information requested.

From: Alan Cox

Dear West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive.,

Your public web site only publishes the standard 65gm reference for
carbon emissions for Metro services (a general figure established
from other schemes). Can you provide the following information

- Actual carbon emission values for the Midland Metro, (or
alternatively approximate kWh consumption by the metro)
- Confirmation of whether your supply is still from a green tariff
and if that green tariff is actually renewables

Several external documents also reference the noise levels for the
Metro but I am unable to locate an external copy of any work
actually done on measuring Metro noise levels and noise monitoring
procedures used other than statements about railgrinding in 2007.

I am just seeking the basic summary information on these questions,
detailed breakdowns are not required unless you think they are
necessary to correctly understand the summary. If the data is in
fact published could you advise me of the URL instead.

Yours faithfully,

Alan Cox
