ROAD TRAFFIC NOISE IN CLUJ-NAPOCA CITY- TEN YEARS AFTER THE FIRST STRATEGIC NOISE MAP
There are currently many assessments and analyzes regarding the road traffic noise, that has proven to be the most serious and annoying source of noise in urban agglomerations. Among these are the reports of the European Environment Agency concerning the noise maps for the years 2007 and 2012. This paper addresses a comparative study of traffic noise in urban areas, especially in the city of Cluj-Napoca, considering two aspects: the measured noise levels, at the same points and the same conditions, in the years 2006 and 2017; results provided by the noise maps in four Romanian cities, regarding the exposure of the population to road traffic noise.
Key words: road traffic noise, noise mapping, exposure to noise, noise indicators, noise measurements
