Polling on noise and air pollution on the roads towards border crossings
Public Enterprise Roads of Serbia and the Hungarian KTI Institute for Transport Sciences Non-profit Ltd have signed an agreement about mutual research and identification of the territory and number of inhabitants affected by noise and air pollution. The research is aimed at making plans to reduce the level of pollution and noise which will improve the quality of life of affected population. The polling was conducted on the road between Subotica and Kelebija.
The interviewers from ‘Roads of Serbia’, assisted by the traffic police, stopped the drivers on their way to border crossing at Kelebija and interviewed them in order to establish the traffic frequency on the road and the level of pollution. Aleksandar Ferković from Subotica says that more such projects are needed.
The project is aimed at the identification of territory and the number of inhabitants affected by level of noise and air pollution that exceeds the limits specified by the EU directives. The total length of state roads in the research area is approximately 280 km, and covers the roads in the border area between Serbia and Hungary, Serbia and Croatia, the direction Sombor – Subotica – Novi Kneževac – Banatsko Aranđelovo and the border area between Serbia and Romania.
In the entire area, noise has been measured at 90 locations, traffic volume and traffic strtucture at more than 40 locations, while air measurments are conducted on the roads directed to the border crossing. The project will include 1200 drivers who will be surveyed, 400 in the region of Subotica.
