HOSANNA seminar - NO0239

Description

Objective
This workshop has been designed by Defra in association with the Open University. It provides an opportunity for public sector officials who work in the highway and rail sectors to hear directly from some of the researchers who worked on this project about their studies and to gain an understanding of some innovative noise mitigation techniques that might be used in an effective manner while also satisfying other environmental criteria.
