ACTIVE PROTECTION FROM NOISE IN TOWN PLANNING. SEGREGATION AND CONCENTRATION OF VARIOUS USES

Noise emission by road traffic is fundamentally dependent upon the traffic flow, the proportion of heavy traffic, the road surface, traffic speed, signal installations, etc. The noise map is a flat representation of traffic noise and distributed according to intensity. It serves not only in the selection of routes and the comparison of variables but also in the examination of environmental compatability. Spatial planning measures to counter too great a noise emission are: segregation of noise emitting and noise sensitive installations, the concentration of installations having similar noise emission. Certain methods of separation using sound techniques, which must be considered in land zoning and planning are described; intermediate zones between roads and residential areas, planting, segregation of vehicle and foot traffic, underground garages, by-passes, greater distances of residential buildings from the street, segregation of traffic types. A series of planning measures are also proposed for the spatial concentration of noise sources, e.g. Connection of industrial areas with high performance roads, focusing of traffic routes and of destination- and source-traffic in residential collector roads.
