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

Noise barriers are probably the most widely recognised form of noise mitigation used by the Transport Agency. Noise barriers need to be considered in the context of providing effective noise relief, while also addressing issues of appearance, urban design, site constraints, maintenance (including whole-of-life costs), safety, graffiti, cost and sustainability. This guide has been produced to aid Transport Agency staff and contractors with the design, construction and maintenance of noise barriers.
