Brussels Metro - Bizet Station
The APT-BF system was installed in a curve close to Bizet Metro station as well as in the station itself. The small radius curve and the acceleration/deceleration of the metros were causing significant noise and vibration in the surrounding buildings.
The APT-BF system was able to reduce the ground borne noise and vibrations significantly and even squeal noise diminished. A year after installation, it was seen that corrugation (which occurred before), did not reappear after track renewal. As a consequence, grinding could be postponed and costs reduced.
