Reducing Traffic Noise (Jun 1995)

CCA Road Note 47 by Cement and Concrete Association

Much of the mechanism to minimise the environmental impact of new, and upgrading of existing, roads is described in environmental impact statements (FIS). Recently, the community has played an important role in the preparation of EISs by assessing the potential impact and benefits derived from such statements Prepared by engineers. More importantly, community grounds have had the opportunity to suggest other alternatives to be evaluated before final design is adopted. The state road authorities have also been actively involved in preparing EIss and in Particular minimising traffic noise in urban areas by using the following techniques • Controlling traffic • Specifying a certain design of road, buildings and barriers as well as the location of such structures • Encouraging the use of 'low-noise devices’ for vehicles and road structures.
