STRATEGIE ZUR BERUECKSICHTIGUNG DES ZIELKRITERIUMS "UMWELTSCHUTZ" IN DER DRINGLICHKEITSREIHUNG DER BUNDESSTRASSEN

THE INCLUSION OF THE CRITERION ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION INTO PRIORITY RATING MEANS THAT CONSTRUCTION MEASURES HAVE TO BE CLASSIFIED ACCORDING TO THEIR EFFECTS ON THE ENVIRONMENT. DEPENDING ON WHETHER THE SECTION UNDER CONSTRUCTION IS INSIDE OR OUTSIDE AN URBAN AREA, OTHER FACTORS HAVE TO BE CONSIDERED WITH THE CRITERION OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION. FOR ROADS IN URBAN AREAS CONSIDERATION WAS GIVEN TO NOISE AND EXHAUST FUMES, AND FOR THOSE OUTSIDE URBAN AREAS TO WATER PROTECTION, LANDSCAPING AND ENVIRONMENTAL INTRUSION.
