Draft Road Noise Policy

30 June 2010

The NSW Department of the Environment and Climate Change is seeking community comment on the draft Road Noise Policy, which will replace the Environmental Criteria for Road Traffic Noise.

According to the Department the draft policy aims for “a more streamlined” assessment process for road projects, increased “protection” for residents in quiet areas experiencing large increases in noise from road projects and provide “up to date guidance” on strategies to minimise road traffic noise.

Comments must be received by Friday 6 August 2010. Please contact us with any feedback you may have. More details are here.
