SI2-335701- SUSTAINABLE ROAD SURFACES FOR TRAFFIC NOISE CONTROL

Project information

Grant agreement ID: GRD2-31801-2000

  • Start date

    1 September 2002

  • End date

    31 August 2005

Funded under:

FP5-GROWTH

  • Overall budget:

    € 3 606 574

  • EU contribution

    € 2 037 340

Coordinated by:

Objective

The first objective is to develop a classification procedure combined with a conformity-of-production testing method. It will start from existing measurement methods, improve some of them and possibly develop new ones. The second objective is to test and specify road construction and maintenance techniques that would achieve satisfactory durability of the acoustic performances while complying with other requirements of sustainability like safety, pollution and mobility. The third objective is to develop a procedure for cost/benefit analysis of noise abatement measures. The fourth objective is to issue a "European Guidance Manual on the Utilisation of Low-Noise Road Surfacing" to help decision-makers to rationally plan noise abating or preventing measures integrating low-noise surfaces with other noise control measures.
