A report by the National Road Transport Commission

From Corey Kolar at RAIN - fighting the noise in Queensland  href="http://www.geocities.com/noisypacificmotorway"> href="http://www.geocities.com/noisypacificmotorway">http://www.geocities.com/noisypacificmotorway

I thought the following might be of some use to you, a little more ammunition
anyway.  href="http://www.nrtc.gov.au/news/nr2002jan14.asp?lo=news&ex=releases">http://www.nrtc.gov.au/news/nr2002jan14.asp?lo=news&ex=releases
Download the copy of the report that is talked about in this article.

Not only are Australian standards relating to truck noise behind the times,
significantly, trucks with over 320Kw will be allowed to continue to be loud,
Iíve got to think that includes most B-doubles, which we know have increased in
number on the Pacific Motorway appreciably. 

Add to that the 4 dB increase that concrete imposes when compared to dense
graded asphalt or 8 dB when compared to open graded asphalt and you have a
recipe for noise.

I wish you the best of luck in your fight.
