Summary of QUESTIM results

Road authorities concerned with traffic noise may be faced with these questions:
1. Why is controlling road traffic noise important?
2. What mitigation measure(s) to choose?
3. Why not apply noise reducing surfaces everywhere?

final project report of QUESTIM

For many road authorities, the application of noise reducing surfaces is still in the experimental phase.

Report on Procedures for Monitoring the Acoustic Quality of Large infrastructures

The acoustic quality of the road surface is an essential component in the generation of road traffic noise and the resulting noise exposure of the environment.

Report on Life Cycle Costing and Pavement Management Systems

Road Authorities are required to efficiently manage their noise mitigation measures such as noise reducing surfaces and noise barriers.

Report on acoustic aging in Nordic countries

The acoustic aging of road surfaces in Nordic countries deviates considerably from other areas in Europe. The wear by studded tyres in winter time leads to strong deterioration of the surface properties already after the first winter.

Analysis of acoustic aging of low noise road surfaces in Europe

The acoustic performance of road surfaces deteriorates with time. This study has gathered data from several countries in Europe on the age related performance of several types of road surfaces, mainly under highway and through road conditions.

Assessing the acoustic durability of noise barriers on NRA road networks

Noise barriers are the most widely used form of noise mitigation on European roads managed by National Road Administrations (NRAs).
