Final event of the Life MONZA Project
LIFE MONZA (Methodologies fOr Noise low emission Zones introduction And management) aimed to introduce an easy-replicable method, with related guidelines, for the identification and the management of the Noise Low Emission Zone (NLEZ), an urban area subject to traffic restrictions, whose impacts and benefits regarding noise issues have been analyzed and tested in the pilot area of the city of Monza, located in North Italy. The infrastructural interventions, able to turn up the pilot area of Libertà district in Monza in a permanent NLEZ, named Top-down measures, have been carried out by the municipality, and they consist in the restriction of vehicles speed, the definition of traffic zone with forbidden access to trucks and the pedestrian crossings introduction and the substitution of the current asphalt with a silent one. In order to involve the inhabitants of the area, many different actions, named Bottom-up measures, as lessons and meetings in primary and high schools to raise awareness about noise effects, ideas contest for students, pedibus service for schoolchildren, have been realized.
Other objectives of the project were the evaluation of complementary effects on the air quality and benefits on wellbeing conditions of the residents.
