Findings of a research project funded by the Research Administration of Kuwait University (Report No.: EV02/99) and completed in 1999 provided useful information - for the first time - on the levels of traffic-generated noise pollution and the attitudes of exposed residents concerning this pervasive urban problem. The Research Report presents the levels of noise pollution measured at local, residential and collector streets, arterial roadways and expressways. This information will benefit both the public and responsible urban policy-makers.
