Noise charges in railway infrastructure: A pricing schedule based on the marginal cost principle

Transport Policy, 2007, vol. 14, issue 3, pages 204-213

Abstract: In order to mitigate the negative effects of transportation and to achieve a competitive transport sector, infrastructure charges in the European Union should be based on short-run marginal costs. This paper shows that railway-noise charges can be estimated using already obtained knowledge of monetary and acoustical noise evaluation. Most European countries have standardized calculation methods for total noise level, which can be used to estimate the marginal acoustical effect.
