  author={Pritikana Das and Manoranjan Parida and Vinod Kumar Katiyar},
  journal={International Journal for Traffic and Transport Engineering},
Level of vehicular noise pollution is one of the major factors to choose pedestrian mode of transportation among other modes of transportation. Transportation systems and their related outcomes are responsible for ensuring safe travel options, including walking people of all ages and different abilities. This study will provide an opportunity to quantify the environmental impact in terms of noise level for future development and planning of pedestrian infrastructure in India. It will also help…

Modelling Of Traffic Noise Pollution
The major contribution of the traffic noise, towards overall noise pollution scenario, is a well known established fact. Traffic noise from highways creates problems for surrounding areas, especially
Evaluation and analysis of traffic noise along bus rapid transit system corridor
The present analysis presents the comparison between observed and predicted noise level at selected corridors and also describes the mitigatory measures to overcome such type of traffic noise pollution through design of noise barrier along the road and motivate people towards the use of public transport system.
Development of Noise Simulation Model for Stationary and Mobile Sources: A GIS-Based Approach
In the rapidly urbanizing country like India, the transportation sector is growing rapidly, which lead to overcrowded roads producing air and noise pollution. Noise of a particular region is
The Traffic Noise Index: A Method of Controlling Noise Nuisance.
This building researc survey is an analysis of the social nuisance caused by urban motor ways and their noise. The Traffic Noise Index is used to indicate traffic noises and their effects on

Noise Pollution-Sources, Effects and Control
Abstract The study examines the problem of noise pollution in the wake of its ill effect on the life of the people. A crosssection survey of the population in Delhi State points out that main sources

Effects of pollution on human growth and development: an introduction.
The effects of pollutants and the mechanisms of effect require further study to understand and, it is hoped, to blunt or block any detrimental effects on human health and well-being.
