Road noise nuisance is a huge problem in Nordic municipalities. It seems difficult to meet national targets for noise abatement. One reason is lack of municipal attention. This study of municipal noise abatement policy shows that road traffic noise abatement in general does not seem to be institutionalised, neither in the municipal organisation nor in the near surroundings. We point out important conditions for making municipalities more active in implementing road noise abatement measures in existing dwelling areas.
