Noise monitoring begins
at Ljubljana Airport

Noise pollution monitoring near Ljubljana Airport begins
At three out of four selected locations in the area around Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, continuous measurement and monitoring of noise has begun in the past few days. Previously, in agreement with the local community certain measures were adopted as a solution to the complex issue of limiting and monitoring noise. One of the key measures, continuous monitoring and measuring of noise, which will also enable the identification of violators, has been implemented in the past few days. The system of noise monitoring is part of the integrated approach to the issue of noise in the areas around the airport, and will help in a non-discriminatory way to improve the quality of life in the municipalities that surround the airport. In line with the contract, the company ZVD. has already set up three measuring terminals, which comprise a measuring system and computer as well as wireless connections, and they have been located at Vodice (Lokarje), Lahovče and Šencur. Unfortunately owing to the negative response from local residents and landowners, the placing of a fourth measuring point in the area of the village of Voklo-Voglje has not been completed. The measuring points were selected on the basis of the most exposed settlements or locations under the approach and take-off paths. Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport has in this way joined more than 40 other European airports that have already implemented this kind of monitoring.
