DUTCH STUDY ON RAILROAD TRAFFIC NOISE

A Dutch study on the community response to noise is presented. The set-up of the study is described broadly. Some details are given about the comprehensive sound level measurement program. Some preliminary results from the social survey are given. A major finding is that annoyance is caused less by the sound of trains running through than by other sounds from the track.
