Experts will take into account the unified urban style.
By the end of the year, 100 thousand square meters of noise protection screens will be replaced in Moscow, according to the capital’s urban complex.
“The implementation of the program to replace noise protection screens continues, within the framework of which 100 thousand square meters of structures with a length of about 22 kilometers will be replaced this year. New screens will be installed on Varshavskoye Highway, Novorizhskaya overpass on the Third Transport Ring, Entuziastov Highway and a number of other road facilities, ”said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Housing and Utilities and Improvement
According to him, specialists will take into account a single urban style – to use panels of only gray color and a certain shape. This will simplify future structural repairs and reduce maintenance costs. The new panels meet all the requirements of GOST.
Noise screens are an important element of modern urban infrastructure, stressed Pyotr Biryukov. These are prefabricated structures, at the base of which there is a pile-grillage foundation (a system of piles driven deep into the ground) that can withstand heavy loads. Racks made of galvanized I-beams in the shape of the letter H are installed on it, and they are attached to soundproof panels.
“The height of the fence depends on the level of sound impact, such parameters as the distance to residential buildings, the terrain, and the traffic load are taken into account. For example, the height of the structure in the sections along the Moscow Ring Road is about eight meters, ”noted Pyotr Biryukov.
Specialists of city services make sure that the noise protection screens are in order: they are regularly washed and repaired, if necessary.
