INTEGRAL APPROACH TO THE COST AND BENEFITS OF PROVISIONS FOR RESIDENTIAL AREAS ALONG STATE HIGHWAYS. SUMMARY REPORT AND CASE STUDY

INTEGRALE BENADERING VAN DE KOSTEN EN BATEN VAN VOORZIENINGEN TEN BEHOEVE VAN WOONGEBIEDEN LANGS RIJKSWEGEN. SAMENVATTENDE RAPPORTAGE EN CASE-STUDY

In earlier studies research has been done on the impact of integral urban development along highways on cost-benefit aspects. Calculations and data are available for all kinds of measurements against noise in zones along roads. For instance: cost of sound barriers, sound insulation, arrangement of rooms in dwellings. Benefits are related to criteria of (environmental) health. Protection against noise in and around dwellings, less air pollution, less wind nuisance, better comfort of dwellings have priority. A computer programme based on the study can be used for studying other situations. For practical reasons a series of case studies complete the earlier studies. The subject of the case studies is a small Dutch town situated in the neighbourhood of a highway. There is a demand for extensions in the area within the town and the highway. Optimalisation of "the maximum" number of inhabitants, environmental health aspects and costs are the subject of the study. Cost-benefit data are available for aspects of noise abatement, prevention of air pollution and wind nuisance, number and types of houses, fresh air for the gardens and balconies.
