In this paper certain current European noise legislation, standards and research including the Physical Agents Directive, the Environmental Noise Directive 2002/49/EC and the Technical Specifications for Interoperability are summarized and their implications in terms of maintaining the track are discussed. In the Environmental Noise Directive a number of research projects investigated noise mapping. From this Directive the action plans for control of noise on the environment follow. Measurements of noise and vibrations on Serbian Railway, before and after track reconstruction, are presented at the end.
