Final event LIFE MONZA project
25 May , 2020 - News
Exposure to noise, particularly caused by road traffic, is a major environmental problem in Europe, affecting millions of people and causing significant public health effects. Restrictions of road traffic in urban areas can be adopted through environmental zones, city tolls, congestion charging, distinguished by vehicle types, speeds and emission standards and the interventions are often used as urban redevelopment. LEZs have been introduced in many European countries, mostly in Italy, and different regulations, at national and local levels have been developed, causing the need of a comprehensive and integrated management process, particularly regarding the environmental effects.
LIFE MONZA (Methodologies fOr Noise low emission Zones introduction And management) addresses these issues, aiming at introducing an easy-replicable method, and related guidelines, for the identification and the management of the Noise Low Emission Zone (NLEZ), an urban area subject to traffic restrictions, whose impacts and benefits regarding noise issues have been analyzed and tested in the pilot area of the city of Monza, located in North Italy.
On 12 June 2020, from 9:30 to 12:30, the final event of the Monza project will be held in ONLINE mode.
The event is free and 3 CFPs will be recognized for Engineers enrolled in the Provincial Order to which they belong.
