The European Noise Directive and NRAs: Final Summary Report CEDR Road Noise 2009-2013

Conference of European Directors of Roads (CEDR) Project Group Road Noise 2 (CEDR RN2) was established in 2009 with the aim of meeting the goals relating to road traffic noise specified as task 8 in CEDR's Strategic Plan 2009–2013 (SP2). In this plan, road traffic noise formed part of the Thematic Domain (TD) Construction, which focused on the role of the National Road Authorities (NRAs) in monitoring developments in various road-related issues, including those relating to environmental issues. At the start of the CEDR RN2 work programme, it was identified that the noise mapping and action planning requirements of the EU Environmental Noise Directive (END) would form a significant component of the group's activities. Five subgroups were established to review and monitor activities associated with END noise mapping, END action planning, value for money in road traffic noise abatement, the EU noise calculation model (CNOSSOS-EU), and road noise research needs. It was generally perceived that addressing these issues would fulfill the requirements outlined in SP2. Contents of this report include: END noise mapping; END noise action plans; Value for money in road traffic noise abatement; CEDR road noise research needs; and CEDR road noise factsheet report.
