TRANSPORT TECHNIQUES WHICH ARE FAVOURABLE TO THE ENVIRONMENT

UMWELTFREUNDLICHE VERKEHRSTECHNIK

The author deals with noise and means of reducing noise in urban and suburban transport. The noise caused by road vehicles travelling at 50 km/h ranges between 67 and 86 decibels; that caused by railway vehicles at the same speed is between 73 and 86 decibels. It is absolutely necessary to reduce the propagation of noise. The author describes in detail the measures to be taken from the point of view of passengers, drivers and residents living in the area: (1) with regard to rail vehicles and track; (2) with regard to road vehicles.
