The type and condition of a road surface can have a significant effect on the noise levels experienced by residents adjacent to state highways. This guide has been produced to inform roading practitioners, contractors and the public about how road surfaces affect noise levels and what low-noise road surfaces are available in different situations. Information is also provided on maintenance issues and basic engineering considerations.
