 The road traffic noise reduction strategy in Cluj-Napoca is integrated into the strategic development plan of Cluj metropolitan area and takes into account the results of the noise maps developed in 2007 and 2012 and the accompanying action plans. The paper discusses the main proposals included in the two action plans for preventing and reducing road traffic noise, indicating their degree of achievement. A SWOT analysis of the noise reduction strategy at the city level is carried out, in the context of European and national legislation. In order to improve the urban noise control, the idea of carrying out the spectral analysis of traffic noise is sustained.

Key words: urban noise, noise reduction, SWOT analysis, road traffic noise, noise spectra
