Abstract—This study provides an evaluation of road traffic noise pollution in Amman, the capital of Jordan through measuring and predicting the statistical noise index L10 (18 hr) at selected sites using the British CRTN method after validation. The measured and future noise levels were found high and exceed the maximum allowable limit of 63 dB(A) at all survey sites calling for the need to apply mitigation measures. The effectiveness of noise barriers in reducing noise levels was investigated and 3-5 m noise barriers were found appropriate.

Index Terms—CRTN, Jordan, mitigation measures, traffic noise.
