The German city of Hamburg will lead in the next few years for reasons of noise protection the 30 speed limit on 85 streets at night, including many major highways. With this measure, the Hamburg Senate wants to curb traffic and offer residents better noise protection. Numerous busy road sections and in some cases even multi-lane main roads are affected. The project is supposed to from mid-2022 implemented as part of a large-scale noise action plan. First should 20 sectors from 22:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. in the morning too Tempo 30 zones become. Another 2024 sectors are to follow in 65. The reason for the introduction of the speed limit is simple: in all sectors the noise level is between 55 and 60 decibels at night. By reducing the speed from 50 to 30 km / h, the traffic noise should be reduced by 2 to 3 dB (A). This would be in terms of effect, such as the halving correspond to the volume of traffic. According to Hamburg's Senator for the Environment Jens Kerstan (Greens), the introduction of the speed limit has resulted in a significant improvement in the night's sleep for more than 35.000 residents.
Noise protection as a central issue
According to data from the Federal Environment Agency, around 2,6 million people across Germany are affected at night by a noise level of 55 decibels, which corresponds to a normal conversation volume. 130.000 of them live in Hamburg alone. According to the Senator for the Environment, there are obviously environmental problems caused by motor vehicles in Hamburg that should not be ignored. According to Kerstan, way too many hamburgers are too loud at night about 55 decibels affected.
Studies in noise impact research clearly show that at such a noise level, undisturbed sleep is not possible and health consequences must also be expected. In the long term, however, bus timetables as well as traffic lights and traffic control systems would have to be adapted. The entire development of the project is monitored by experts and everyone in Hamburg can comment on the project online until June 25, 2021.
How is compliance with the speed limit checked?
Initially, the city wants to trust the citizens to comply with the law when complying with the speed limit, but random police checks are also up for debate. And what is the future in Hamburg? Meanwhile, a speed limit of 30 km / h already applies at six noise focal points, sometimes even for 24 hours a day. In addition to the planned measures, also 15 zones as "quiet areas" declared, including nature reserves and the Ohlsdorf and Öjendorf cemeteries. In these “quiet areas”, it can be proven that the traffic noise must no longer increase. In addition, the Hamburg Senate wants to integrate 26 "islands of calm" in the city center into the noise action plan. Including above all green areas and cemeteries.
