Vibration impact of passing trains for the Westbury condo project

Global description

The Westbury Montreal project is a complex of buildings located near the Canadian Pacific (CP) railway line in Montreal. This track is used by CP freight trains but also by AMT passenger trains. A study of the transmission of vibrations was carried out beforehand for the first phases of the project and made it possible to design anti-vibration solutions to limit the vibration levels in the residential parts of the buildings closest to the tracks.

Challenges

The vibrations were measured to assess their compliance and determine if mitigation solutions are necessary.
