The TEEM executive project also includes elements to reduce noise pollution by putting in place numerous mitigation systems across the entire motorway and the related works. In total, this covers about 16 km. Much of these efforts involve the creation of noise-abating embankments and sound-absorbing barriers made of steel, concrete and glass. Such structures range in height from 3 to 5 m and can be found on the sides of the motorway, thus blocking the noise generated by passing vehicles. Precise criteria are followed in placing such structures, having been determined in accordance with the stringent sound impact studies conducted both in the lab and on site. Finally, noise pollution will also be prevented through the use of a special draining and sound-absorbing asphalt that will not only improve driver and passenger safety, but also reduce the noise produced by vehicles on this new road infrastructure.
