The Task Group Road Noise presented the key findings and recommendations arising from their recently published three reports at a symposium.
The objective of this symposium was to present the latest knowledge concerning road traffic noise management and abatement in Europe. Recently, the Task Group Road Noise of the Conference of European Road Directors (CEDR) has completed its work by publishing reports covering topics such as noise reducing pavements, noise barriers and methods for cost-benefit/effectiveness analysis. This symposium will focus on the dissemination of the key findings and the recommendations arising from this work. The presentation of these new CEDR reports was augmented by additional stimulating presentations and discussion focusing on new solutions and methods linked to the area of road traffic noise abatement and the integration of road traffic noise into road and traffic planning and management. This symposium provided new ideas and tools to the development of noise action plans as well as stimulating debate.
