Transportation is the dominant noise source in the UK and represents the most significant source affecting new and existing developments. Noise sensitive developments adjacent to or affected by transportation must have careful assessment of the acoustic impact of these sources. New or altered forms of transportation or increases in transportation levels, near to existing noise sensitive sites, also require careful assessment to minimise impact.
WBM can bring to your team considerable experience in assessing noise from transportation sources, including existing, new or altered roads, passenger and freight train activity, traincare depots, and air and ground noise from airports and heliports.
We will provide you with the technical expertise in measurements and computer modelling using, where appropriate, the Integrated Noise Model (INM), for aircraft noise levels, and SoundPlan for other transportation noise. Applying our tested problem solving skills we will work with you to deliver practical solutions to best mitigate potential noise impacts in line with recognised national criteria.
