London Overground Announcements (Homerton)

Transport for London did not have the information requested.

Dear Transport for London,

The announcements at Homerton station have been unacceptably loud for well over a month now, since volumes were increased again at the beginning of May. This is in spite of repeated requests from residents nearby to turn the volume down again so there is no overspill from the station, as was the case before the station renovations.

The same problem occurred last April (2011), and was eventually resolved with the reduction of volumes (and announcement frequencies) to a more acceptable level.

I have written to Mungon Duncan of London Overground (as well as emailing and making several telephone calls to London Overground). I believe Mr Duncan is 'looking into the problem', but I'm yet to hear anything back from him personally about what is going to be done about this persistent problem for residents such as myself within close proximity of the station.

I wish to know exactly what has been done during the past month to put the situation right, and what will be done in the future to prevent this unnacceptable level of station noise intrusion for local residents.

Yours faithfully,
