Acoustics Consultants Australia staff have successfully undertaken and delivered numerous road, rail, aircraft and shipping noise and vibration assessments. Our experience includes road/rail traffic and aircraft noise intrusion assessments in relation to small development applications for individual residences, to leading the noise and vibration scope of services required throughout the planning phases for design and construction of large and complex transport infrastructure projects.

Featured Project

Transport & Environmental Services

Managing the potential noise impacts from transport infrastructure projects is a statutory requirement and must be given due consideration during all project stages to minimise impacts on the environment and preserve the levels of expected amenity for residential and other sensitive receivers located close to the transport corridor.

Acoustics Consultants Australia has a detailed understanding of the regulatory framework, state policies and guidelines for the assessment of major transportation projects and have proven experience in the modelling and measurement techniques and project management skills required for successful project delivery.

Our experience has included leading Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) noise and vibration assessments for major road upgrades involving major bypasses to identify properties for consideration of government acquisition, development of noise mitigation strategies including in-corridor treatments, e.g. barrier designs, low noise pavements and facade upgrade treatments for residences. Additionally, we are experienced in the undertaking of rail noise and vibration studies and impact assessments and the assessment of noise generated by ports from shipping activities.
