STRATEGIES FOR URBAN NOISE ABATEMENT: AN OVERVIEW

This report examines the levels of action, national and international, at which administrative and regulatory measures can be taken (1) to reduce noise at source (development of new products, setting up of standards for products in use, noise-related landing charges on aircraft, imposition of limits for noise from fixed sources), and (2) to reduce exposure to noise (isolation of noise sources, planning and noise abatement, routing and design of new roads, compensation, regulation of air and road traffic). Suggestions are put forward for the development of A rational noise abatement programme, and the allocation of tasks at local, national and international level is discussed. /TRRL/
