Review:

"A highly useful source of information ... for architects, planners, developers, engineers and acousticians"Acoustics Bulletin

"A useful book that should improve your knowledge of barrier noise control. It has the potential to inspire, to encourage you to develop barriers that are both effective and attractive. Even if you don't have time to read the text, you will gain many ideas merely by looking at the pictures." – Graham Custard, Noise Engineering Journal
