Noise Mapping Austria

January 27, 2009
Within the scope of the implementation of the EC Directive on environmental noise, the strategic noise maps for all of Austria were calculated with CadnaA. The project carried out by ACCON GmbH (Acoustical Consultants) covered all major roads and railroad lines within Austria. Noise maps and all relevant statistics according to the EC Directive were produced for 2100 km of roads, 550 km of railroads, and a total area of more than 8000 km².
