The goal? To provide municipalities with tools to establish noise maps and action plans, offering a broad range of validated technical solutions for noise hot spots in their city.
The EU-funded project 'Acoustically green road vehicles and city areas' (CITYHUSH) sought to empower cities to create Q-Zones with noise levels reduced by over 20 decibels, and parks within these zones where current noise levels would be reduced by 25 decibels.
