How to encourage traffic noise abatement in Nordic municipalities?
Institute of Transport Economics.
2007 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Road noise nuisance is a huge problem in the Nordic countries, and it seems difficult to meet national targets. One reason is lack of municipal activities in the field. A study of the anatomy of municipal noise abatement policy shows that road traffic noise abatement in general does not seem to be institutionalised, nor in the municipal organisation neither in the near surroundings, though possibly, the large municipalities represent an exception to this rule. Two case studies of municipalities carrying out extraordinary efforts point out important conditions for making municipalities actively provide for and implement road noise abatement measures in situations of existent residential areas and roads.
