Keywords: Silesian agglomeration, traffic noise, road noise test, noise studies


Due to the constantly growing number of vehicles on the roads and the progressive development of cities, road infrastructure and the construction of new communication routes, noise has become an indispensable element of our lives. It accompanies us practically around the clock and is one of the factors that degrade the environment and is a source of nuisance for people living near roads. The article presents the results of the research on traffic noise occurring in the vicinity of selected communication routes of the Upper Silesian agglomeration.
