1 Environmental Noise Directive First results Núria Blanes and Jaume Fons ETC-LUSI / UAB NRC for Noise Meeting Copenhagen, 12 November 2008

2 Coverage

3 EU 27 END 25% 121 Millions of people … and 162 agglomerations

4 Agglomerations: sources of noise (L den ) Noise bands Noise source 42 Mio people exposed

5 Agglomerations: impact of roads (L den ) Noise bands Agglomeration class (1000 inh.)

6 People affected by major roads (L den ) 12 Mio people exposed outside agglomerations

7 People affected by major rails (L den ) People affected / km of rail 2 Mio people exposed outside agglomerations

8 Major airports Movements / year Nr people exposed Copenhagen people exposed outside agglomerations

9 Next steps Data base finalised (completed + clean) Data integration –Noise contour maps + NRL –Tabular data + NRL Further explore the results –Use of additional sources (e.g. Urban Audit) –Spatial assessment Provide a user-friendly platform to present the results (web interactive tool)

10 Remarks on Reportnet Noise: –complex requirements, –a lot of information –need to ensure/facilitat data collection to reduce mistakes Data not properly reported may be useless What Reportnet offers: –Streamlining the process –One single place (Data dictionary, templates, QA) –Easy to keep track

11 QA on demand QA to avoid/recognise common mistakes –Data format –Hundreds –Empty cells

12 Empty cells Interesting to kow different situations: better assessment. Use of 2 codes to indicate that data is not reported: –Below END thresholds –No major sources of noise (0 has several meanings) –Data not mandatory / not YET available /not available
