Reducing street works noise to cut complaints

Case study

Maintenance works, Bristol Water, Bristol UK

"We tested several barrier products for noise attenuation and leakage. Echo Barrier came out best"
Ian Kilgour, Health, Safety, Quality and Environmental Manager, Murphy Group

Bristol Water used our temporary acoustic barriers to reduce noise pollution during water pipe maintenance in a busy high street. As a digger broke up tarmac, Bristol Water measured noise levels at 97dB(A) inside the work area. At the pedestrian side of the barrier, noise levels were just 82dB(A).


“This shows a significant reduction in noise levels" said Philippa Burgess, Safety Adviser at Bristol Water.

Key Details
The noise problem
With thousands of pedestrians passing by the site each day, the utility company had a duty to keep noise to a strict minimum—to comply with the local authority’s noise restrictions.
Our solution
Bristol Water’s workers were able to quickly and easily hang our barriers around the site to reduce noise pollution—and to shield passers-by from the dust and debris created on-site.
The results
As a digger broke up tarmac, Bristol Water recorded noise levels at 97dB(A) inside the work area. At the pedestrian side of the barrier, noise levels were reduced to 82dB(A). “Our measurements showed a significant reduction in noise levels,” said Philippa Burgess, safety adviser at Bristol Water. “The barriers made a considerable difference.”
