ABSTRACT


Motorized road vehicles are the major source of noise; always responsible for creating annoyance among people. The present study is aimed to investigate the correlation between annoyance level and different noise indices and its impact on residents/community in terms of annoyance index. Noise and attitudinal response of local population were carried out at ten commercial road networks of the city. To define the noise annoyance quantitatively, a new point scale [i.e. Mean Dissatisfaction Score)(MDS)]has been used in the present study , a strong correlation was observed between percentage highly annoyed and various noise indices.


Keywords: Noise percentile levels; Noise annoyance; Traffic congestion; Noise annoyance index.
