Noise reducing wall for private garden
- Location: Amersfoort, the Netherlands
- Dealer: Van Dijk Tuinen
Employees of Van Dijk Tuinen, a landscape gardening company from Werkhoven, are putting the finishing touches to a gigantic noise-reducing wall for this private garden in Amersfoort, the Netherlands. Because of the recent reconstruction of the Arnhemseweg-Kersenbaan junction, the road surface has now reached the boundary with the private garden.
Noise-reducing wall for private garden
In order to strongly reduce the traffic noise for residents, it was decided, in consultation with the Amersfoort local authorities, to construct a 60 metre-long and 3 metre-high so-called NoiStop wall. This special noise barrier with elements made of compressed mineral wool in a casing of galvanised steel reduces noise by about 40%. A slope will be made at the base of the as-yet bare wall, where Hedera (ivy) will be planted, soon giving the wall a natural, ‘green’ look.
