Research of noise pressure problem due to the increase in the motor transport complex in the city of Arkhangelsk








The article presents a study of the increasing noise pressure on the environment in the city of Archangelsk. Noise pollution problem is becoming urgent because of the increasing traffic flows. The authors state that no town planning measures or planning solutions have been taken so far to reduce the noise pressure in the city. For the study, there were selected experimental areas with increased noise levels on the streets with high traffic intensity throughout the day. Some socially significant objects, such as a hospital, a gymnasium, the university, a kindergarten, are located there. The factors affecting the city road network capacity have been investigated. There have been developed methods for determining the noise level in the city of Arkhangelsk. After a detailed analysis of the results, a selection was made in regard of the object that was exposed to the noise pressure from traffic flows most seriously. As a result of the research, measures are recommended that have been chosen basing on feasibility, economic efficiency and the lowest labor costs.
