Characterisation and measurement of noise levels in an urban environment.
The existing noise pollution status of Nagpur urban environment with emphasis on objective measurement and subjective reaction of the people is reported.
Road traffic noise has been a major contributor to the annoyance which is substantiated by the results of continuous monitoring of noise equivalent levels (Leq) at a number of residential, commercial, sensitive and industrial areas during day and night.
The transportation network and vehicular noise at various intersections of the city have also been studied.
Public participation, education, traffic management, proper land use, proper designing of building and green belt play a major role in noise abatement.
