Road Noise

Volume 450: debated on Monday 16 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what action the Government have taken to ensure the rural proofing of the policy on reducing noise problems from the trunk road network; and if he will make a statement. (93320)

No action has been taken on “rural proofing” the policy on reducing noise problems from the strategic road network. Where severe noise problems have been identified at locations alongside the existing network, resources have been targeted at addressing those locations where the noise levels are greatest and where greatest number of people would benefit from measures taken.
