Auditorium 2 (592)

This presentation will consider the issue of transportation noise from the perspective of the citizen. There are some whose lives are significantly adversely affected by transport noise and who might expect the Environmental Noise Directive (END) to help make their lives better. For others, transport noise is an irritant that they would prefer not to experience, and they, too, might expect the END to help. But there are other citizens who would object to their lives being disrupted if measures were introduced to reduce noise that caused them to experience restricted choice of travel or found their movement was inhibited. This presentation will examine these tensions in the context of the future direction of European Noise Policy.
