Final Report - INQUEST (Information Network for Quiet European Road Surface Technologies)

Project ID: 31409
Funded under: FP6-INFRASTRUCTURES

Abstract

This is the final report of the INQUEST project, which aimed at coordinating communication and dissemination of past and present research pertaining to guidance on the use of low-noise technologies for road surfaces to European countries with less access and experience in applying knowledge in that field. One of the main instruments was the dissemination of the contents of the guidance manual developed by 'Sustainable road surfaces for traffic noise control' (SILVIA), a European-funded project completed in August 2005, by means of a series of workshops in countries that were not involved in SILVIA, with priority given to new member states.

The document begins with describing the project's objectives and its relation to SILVIA, along with the contractors involved and their role in the project. The report continues with special reference and proceedings from each of the workshops organised. It concludes with an evaluation of the workshops, recommendations on quiet surface policies and expected impact of the study.
