This book discusses the environmental impact of road, rail and air transport. The effects of air pollution from road traffic are evaluated, together with ground borne vibration generated by road and rail vehicles and the overall noise effects of all three transport modes. The loss of visual amenity resulting from road construction schemes is also considered. The subject matter is treated under the following chapter headings: (1) impact assessment for transport proposals; (2) highway traffic noise; (3) predictions of highway noise; (4) road traffic noise control; (5) aircraft noise; (6) train noise; (7) atmospheric pollution. The principles of acoustics are appended, together with details of human response to, and insulation against noise. /TRRL/
