Expert: noise monitoring costs shall be included in a road construction budget in advance


Otherwise it will be impossible to ensure compliance with technical regulations

Cost of noise monitoring during roads operation shall be included in the construction budget at the initial stages so that this monitoring will be actually performed. Natalia Tyurina, Director of Chief Engineer Service of Institute Transecoproject, dwelled on this on Wednesday during the session «Trends and innovations in ecology» of the International Forum on Industrial Safety.

"Noise monitoring costs shall be taken into account when a road construction budget is elaborated so as to ensure possibility to conduct respective activities in future,’ Tyurina noted. She emphasized that technical regulations become stricter every year. In particular, the new GOSTs incorporate technical regulations of the Customs Union with respect to noise level monitoring and control of acoustic screens efficiency.

Moreover, the regulations set a requirement for comparing noise levels at the beginning and at the end of construction. "It is important to consider background noises at the design stage so as not to be responsible for those noises that had existed in the area before the road was constructed,’ the expert marked. She added that acoustic screens do help to meet the principal requirement — bringing the noise level from 75-80 dB down to 55 dB and lower.

The International Forum on Industrial Safety is held in St. Petersburg every year. In 2018, it is the 16th time. This year the Forum venue is Hilton Hotel St. Petersburg Expoforum. The conference was attended by more than 170 people from different states. The organizer is GCE Group.

Forum participant’s opinion

«First of all I would like to point out high organizational level of the Forum. The event provides a unique opportunity to share experience with industrial safety experts from various countries. We discussed lots of challenging topics. The most important for Blue Stream Pipeline Company B.V., like for all hazardous industrial facilities operators, are industrial safety practices and changes occurred in the legislation, especially the changes in the Federal Law 116-FZ which impacted everyone. In addition, I would say that the main challenge in the present world is the responsibility of the owner of any hazard facility. This challenge must be paid close attention to.»
