State highway guide to acoustic treatment of buildings

Published: | Category: Urban design , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audience: Road traffic engineers & consultants

Noise mitigation provided by the NZ Transport Agency is always within the road corridor where practicable, using low-noise road surfaces and noise barriers. If those measures are not practicable then the acoustic treatment of buildings, such as the provision of mechanical ventilation so that windows can be left closed, may be offered to residents where required by NZS 6806. This guide has been produced to inform the Transport Agency staff and contractors about factors involved in the selection, design and installation of acoustic treatment of buildings.
