Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

WICK­LOW County Coun­cil has pre­pared a Draft Noise Ac­tion Plan 2018 - 2023 and submission­s or observatio­ns can be lodged up un­til Au­gust 15.

The plan is in com­pli­ance with the re­quire­ments of the En­vi­ron­men­tal Noise Di­rec­tive and the En­vi­ron­men­tal Noise Reg­u­la­tions and is mainly fo­cused on the im­pact of ma­jor roads within County Wick­low.

The plan ap­plies to the ar­eas ad­ja­cent to roads in County Wick­low, which ex­pe­ri­ence traf­fic vol­umes in ex­cess of three mil­lion ve­hi­cles a year and rail­ways with more than 30,000 train pas­sen­gers per year. Strate­gic noise maps have been pre­pared for all roads and rail­ways deemed to fall within these thresh­olds.

The ac­tion reviews the re­sults of strate­gic noise map­ping un­der­taken within County Wick­low and de­tails the progress achieved in re­la­tion to the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the pre­vi­ous Noise Ac­tion Plan.
