MEASURES TO CONTROL NOISE HINDRANCE

MAATREGELEN TEGFEN GELUIDSHINDER

On September 30, 1975 a draft of the act on the prevention and limitation of noise nuisance was proposed to the Dutch Parliament. In this proposal emphasis is laid on noise nuisance caused by industry, road traffic and rail bound traffic. In this article only measures caused by road traffic are discussed. The problems of noise nuisance and the relation between noise level and noise nuisance are studied. Secondly the main points of the proposed legislation are given. Thereafter some ways of preventing noise nuisance are presented. One of these is the construction of noise barriers. Specifications for such barriers are mentioned. Finally a number of noise barriers already in use are described. (TRRL)
