WP5 - Assessment of the impact of roads on the environment
The aim of this work package is to establish a firm basis for recommendations on environmental-friendly pavement types in the NMS by assessing a range of pavements from several environmental points of view. The primary objective is to reduce emissions and nuisance from road traffic and road pavements which have impacts on human health, on the environment and on buildings. The work package will focus on:
- Characterization of different types of road pavements with regard to environmental features.
- The influence of road pavement type on traffic noise emission with regard to the typical compositions and pavements used in the New Member States.
