NOISE IS AN URBAN ISSUE
Noise affects many people in urban environments. Studies indicate that increases in noise levels have an impact on the health and the quality of life of people. In many countries, noise is a low priority issue but in the ‘developed world’ legislation dictates that noise needs to be dealt with. This lecture focuses on tackling traffic noise pollution and the many ways that noise reductions can be achieved in simple as well as innovative and creative ways.
