A broad brush method of predicting the noise of traffic on a rural road network is described. An example prediction is given as an appendix. The noise prediction described is an approximation designed to assess in broad terms the changes of noise level following changes in a transport network. It gives a fairly accurate prediction of the fractional change of land area exposed to a given noise level but is less reliable as a prediction of the absolute change. /TRRL/
