Summary

This study is part of the Swedish research program TVANE, where a number of questionnaire surveys have been performed. A comparison between three areas demonstrates that the reported annoyance is higher where the traffic intensity is higher even if the equivalent noise level is the same. The traffic intensity varies with a factor of 7 between the areas, and the reported annoyance is increased 1.3 – 2.5 times.
