This memorandum describes the procedures for calculating noise from road traffic, which therefore provide appropriate guidance relating to highway design and location, environmental planning etc. In Section I a method is set out, step by step, for predicting noise levels at a distance from a highway, taking into account different traffic flows, road configuration, and intervening ground cover. In section II the procedure, physical conditions and equipment for a measurement method are detailed together with details of a simplified measurement procedure which is acceptable in certain circumstances. Examples of the application of the procedures are given in annexes 1-17. /TRRL/
