AbstractThe inconveniences caused by urban traffic noise are fast being recognized by growing numbers of the general public. Social surveys from various parts of the world indicate that the noise from surface traffic gives rise to more neighbourhood dissatisfaction than aircraft noise does. One reason for this is that surface traffic noise is not restricted to specific areas, as aircraft noise is, but pervades most built-up areas in towns and cities.
