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

«This was a very impressive group of professional industrial safety experts. It is useful to get people together who do similar work, so that they can gain knowledge from the experience of others and understand regulations and requirements for improvement of safety. There were very interesting and informative presentations and it was clear that people here were interacting and learning from one another.  However, I received interesting questions about my presentation and I hope that my presentation was of some use to the delegates. I enjoyed the interactions with the participants and I enjoyed the overall event. The organization of the meeting was exceptional. GCE management did a great job in organizing and implementing the conference».
