This project is supporting work by Birmingham City Council in relation to a traffic modelling and noise nuisance project, using the Birmingham authority's area as an example for a forthcoming EU Directive on reducing transport related noise.
The project is linked with Mott Macdonald's Birmingham office's work on th etraffic model, and University of East Anglia's study on the evaluation of noise nuisance costs (H109C).
The Birmingham area's models have been used to test a number of hypothetical traffic management options aimed at reducing transport related noise on the road network(s).
