DETERMINATION OF TRAFFIC NOISE NUISANCE AS A FUNCTION OF TRAFFIC TYPE AND DENSITY IN A HEAVILY POPULATED AREA

On the basis of a study including noise level measurements during the day and night and 1125 interviews with residents, it was found that railway noise creates less of a disturbance than street traffic noise. By far the largest majority of respondents experienced the greatest disturbance during the day. The difference in nuisance decreases as noise level rises.
