EFFECT OF NOISE PROTECTION MEASURES ON THE EASE, FLUIDITY AND SAFETY OF MOVING TRAFFIC

EINFLUSS VON LAERMSCHUTZMASSNAHMEN AUF DIE LEICHTIGKEIT, FLUESSIGKEIT UND SICHERHEIT DES VERKEHRSABLAUFS

NOISE PROTECTION MEASURES SUCH AS WALLS, RETAINING WALLS, CUTTINGS AND TUNNELS ALONG ROADS RESTRICT THE DRIVER'S FIELD OF VISION. TO INCREASE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF NOISE PROTECTION MEASURES, FOR ECONOMIC REASONS OR BECAUSE OF INSUFFICIENT SPACE THE STRUCTURES FREQUENTLY HAVE TO BE ERECTED AS FIXED OBSTACLES NEXT TO THE TRAFFIC LANE. THE AIM OF THE WORK IS TO DETERMINE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS NOISE PROTECTION MEASURES AND THE INFLUENCE OF THESE ON TRAFFIC FLOW AND SAFETY.
